Welcome to – a hub dedicated to the preservation and promotion of our rich heritage. We serve as proud representatives of the descendants originating from the Pairrebeenne clans, rooted in the historical soils of Tebrikunna, Cape Portland.

Serving as Directors of the Djerriwarrh Te Moana Nui A Kiwa Aboriginal Corporation, we extend a heartfelt welcome to all visitors, wishing you wellness and safety.

We embrace our diverse community, encompassing the New Zealand Maori descendants of Edward Tomlins, fondly known as “Black Ned”. As an integral figure of the Pairrebeenne clan, his story continues to resonate through our community.

Our mission hinges on the collaboration and reconstruction of our shared family history, aiming to preserve it for generations to come. With a focus on providing aid and support to our extended aboriginal family and intermediate families, we take a community-oriented approach.

We are in the process of developing a complimentary community wheelchair-accessible bus service. This initiative is designed to encourage the active involvement of our senior members in regular activities, ranging from shopping and socialising to travel. As part of our mission to foster an inclusive community, we’re seeking generous contributions to help us acquire a bus that can make this vision a reality. Any assistance provided towards this cause will directly support the betterment and increased exclusivity of our community.

Furthermore, we take pride in promoting and preserving the rich Aboriginal heritage. To this end, we ensure transportation and guided tours to historically significant sites, fostering education about indigenous resources and activities that resonate with the Koorie culture.

Our website’s name, “”, stems from the term “Djaambi”, symbolising brotherhood in the western region of Victoria. This foundation lays the groundwork for the men’s group within our corporation.

All members hold a registered association with the Djerriwarrh Te Moana Nui A Kiwa Aboriginal Corporation, and embody a direct Aboriginal heritage connection to Poolrerrener, Bullrer, and Black Ned – figures of paramount significance in the

Pairrebeenne clans, people from Tebrikunna.

Our emblematic figure, Black Ned, commenced his journey as a harpooner on a British whaling vessel off the coast of Tasmania, eventually making his way to New Zealand. Here, he formed a life with Hipora Iwikatea, a Maori wahine, continuing his legacy through whaling and seal hunting.

Registered with ORIC as the Djerriwarrh Te Moana Nui A Kiwa Aboriginal Corporation (8108), we humbly acknowledge the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people as the initial inhabitants, traditional owners, and custodians of the lands and waterways we reside upon. We honor and express our deepest respect to the Elders, both past and present.

As members of Djaambi, we take immense pride in acknowledging our ancestral lineage, tracing back to the Pairrebeenne clans people from Tebrikunna, Cape Portland to Tasmania
