The Butchulla People

The Butchulla / Badtjala people are the Traditional Owners of K’Gari (Fraser Island).

For more than 6000 years the Butchulla / Badtjala people have lived in harmony with the seasons and all living things on land and sea, maintaining a balance between spiritual, social and family connections.

Today the Butchulla / Badtjala people are actively involved in the management of K’Gari through the Fraser Island World Heritage Area Indigenous Advisory Committee and their Aboriginal Rangers, as well as maintaining their cultural links.
