Wollumbin

I only had time today to take a couple of photos of Mount Warning just before sunset. The sky had just the slightest hint of sunset colours and a patch of cloud hovered over the mountain.

Seeing the clouds reminded me of another name for the mountain. To the local Bundjalung Aboriginal people, the mountain is Wollumbin, which means “cloud catcher”.

Wollumbin is pronounced Wool-um-bin, so very similar to the spelling.

There are so many Aboriginal place names in the area. I must compile a list one day, but that will be a project for when I’m not working on uni assignments. ๐Ÿ™‚
