Mibbinbah is Australia’s only national Indigenous male health promotion charity. It seeks to undertake a range of activities to build the capacity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Island male groups and their communities across Australia. Mibbinbah is also known as Mibbinbah Men’s Spaces, because of its strong leadership and advocacy for establishing culturally safe spaces for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander males to explore and enrich their identity, well-being and skills.
Mibbinbah maintains links with a national network of over 600 Indigenous males and community groups across Australia. It seeks to celebrate the great diversity of culture and language represented by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities. Since 2007, Mibbinbah has coordinated a national program of events for males from these communities, including an annual men’s camp. Please explore the site to learn more about Mibbinbah’s camps and other community activities.
The meaning of Mibbinbah – The two words Mibbin meaning Men or Eagle and Bah meaning place come from the Eastern Yugambeh Language of South Eastern Queensland. Therefore placing the two words together gives us Men’s place. The Mibbinbah logo was designed and painted by local Tweed artist, Dean Rotumah.
