Bangarra is the Wurundjeri word for ‘fire stick’ or ‘to make fire’. Australia’s Wurundjeri are people of the mountains, rivers and plains whose culture is both rich and ancient. Prior to European settlement, when the Wurundjeri people moved camp, they carried a burning stick with them to perpetually keep their fire alight.
