We encourage everyone to learn and share the Gubbi Gubbi language, especially at schools and childcare centres in the classroom. It is appropriate that teaching the Gubbi Gubbi language extensively in the classroom is done by a traditional owner who has cultural knowledge of the Gubbi Gubbi people. Language among the Aboriginal people was essential and shared. Learning was often through observation and using what was at hand.

In Australia, there were more than 250 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander languages including 800 dialects. There are over 150 Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander language groups in Queensland. The Gubbi Gubbi language is living on with many working towards reviving it to its fullest. The Gubbi Gubbi people are thankful to the ancestors both Indigenous and non-Indigenous for recording the language.
