Artist's Description

Anglican Church Missionary Ernest Gribble began to regularly visit the Aboriginal tribe who originally inhabited the Yarrabah area living a very traditional lifestyle. These visits by Missionary Ernest Gribble were to encourage the tribe to move to a mission settlement he was in the process of setting up. With the help of the tribes leader Menmuny, the tribe moved to the mission now know as Yarrabah Community. With the closing of the mission in the late 1960’s, the new Yarrabah Community came under the Queensland Government. The first Yarrabah Community Aboriginal Council was established.

Yarrabah is set in an idyllic place, with gorgeous beaches and lovely shade trees. The people who talked to me as I photographed the wreck off their beach were full of conversation and their children ran and smiled hugely and posed for my camera as well. They insisted I take their picture and I will cherish those pictures for the wonderful children who made my day so fantastic.

This is the wreck on the beach at Yarrabah in the very late afternoon looking through the Lee Big Stopper filter.
