Gooreng Gooreng Apical Family Aboriginal Corporation (GGAFAC)
The Gooreng Gooreng people have been actively operating under different banners over the past 50 years and have a long connection and interest in the Gladstone region, encompassing the Bundaberg, North Burnett and Gladstone Regional Council districts. They number their Apical Ancestors as 13 and had a native title 'Consent Determination' by Judge Dowsett in the Federal Court of Australia in Gladstone in November 2017. The 'Consent Determination' declared 17 Apical Ancestors as providing rights and recognition to all Apical Families of the Gooreng Gooreng, Byeellee, Taribelang Bunda and Gurang Peoples. Gooreng Gooreng Apical Family Aboriginal Corporation (GGAFAC) is currently an auspice body of Gehgre Aboriginal Corporation. Gehgre have their own agenda for local community and celebrate GGAFAC and the Gooreng Gooreng people. Our office space within NFP House is a small step in our corporate plan to realise the potential of the Apical Family and GGAFAC for their future development and wider interest for its membership and its people.
