Dubay Nurahm Aboriginal Area is located within the area of the Jali Local Aboriginal Land Council and is part of the broader lower Richmond coastal zone of Bundjalung country. Dubay Jarjum Nurahm means ’women-children asleep’ in the Nyangbal dialect of the Bundjalung language. The naming of the Aboriginal area is in recognition of the number of female skeletal remains uncovered here during sand mining operations in 1995.
