What We Do

The Gidarjil Development Corporation encompasses a range of different aspects of our community, heritage and culture.

Caring for Country

The Caring For Country Program has been developed to enable Indigenous people (including Elders, traditional Owners, men, women and young people) to undertake environmental work on country that meets their aspirations for keeping their country healthy and for protecting their heritage.

Training and Employment

The training and employment programs are designed to assist indigenous people in gaining the necessary skills and knowledge to pursue their career pathways. The successful participants gain valuable exposure to a wide range of techniques, skills and qualifications.

Language - Central Queensland Language Centre

The Central Queensland Language Centre supports local indigenous language communities with the revitalisation and maintenance of Indigenous languages through a range of language programs which include Resource development, Language acquisition, Language worker training, Workshop delivery, and Community learning.

Gidji Art

Gidarjil Development Corporation auspices the Central Queensland Indigenous Arts Development Project. This project supports the many talented indigenous artists of the Central Queensland and Wide Bay regions. Support comes in many forms: The Arts Development Officer, based in the Gidarjil office, develops funding applications, organises exhibitions and shares information helpful to artists, while keeping a good eye on the art market so that indigenous artists are provided with reliable and helpful information.

Cultural Heritage

Gidarjil Cultural Heritage Corporation Ltd is currently the interim nominated body for the PCCC Cultural Heritage. The PCCC is made up of the Gooreng Gooreng, Taribelang Bunda, Bailai & Gurang tribal groups.


Port Curtis Coral Coast Regional TUMRA (Traditional Use of Marine Resources Agreement) was developed under the Reef Rescue Land and Sea Country Indigenous Partnerships Program

The PCCC Regional TUMRA is the fifth and largest agreement of its kind - it covers an area almost ten times the size of Canberra and the Australian Capital Territory or 26,386km2.
