The Logan and Albert Conservation Association acknowledges the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work with others to restore.
We pay respect to the Elders, past and present, and extend that respect to other Indigenous Australians.
Our work involves the lands of a number of peoples including Yugarabul, Yuggera, Jagera, Turrbal , Yugambeh, Kombumerri and Quandamooka peoples.
The Logan and Albert Conservation Association embraces the importance of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture, identity and knowledge.
A significant event is the annual Drumley walk to honour Billy Drumley who was a local hero who worked to make his community a better place. The walk follows the footsteps of Billy Drumley in the early 1900s as he regularly set off on a 60km journey to check on his sister and her family. His trail takes us from the country centre of Beaudesert, up through the forests of the Gold Coast hinterland, and down along the Nerang River to the coastal centre of Southport. Drumley, at the age of 86 completed the walk in a day.
