Moongalba

Moongalba was established on North Stradbroke Island, by Kath Walker as a cultural education centre in 1971 with the aid of the Aboriginal Arts Board administration grants. It was visited extensively by school children, as well as teachers, students, academics, writers and others. Kath Walker was initially granted a twenty-five year lease to the land by the Redland Shire Council; this was later extended to her lifetime. However, she was never granted legal title to the land, despite the support of many influential people. In 1979 Kath Walker prepared a submission to the federal Department of Aboriginal Affairs, requesting financial assistance and support in obtaining title to the land. Her application was never answered.

Moongalba diary from 1 Jun 1972 to 1976

This Chelsea book-keeping book has a substantial number of journal entries by Kath Walker outlining activities in setting up Moongalba by her and her helpers. The first one dates from 1 June 1972. It begins: 'Bill Mewett & I started clearing the land. Much prickly pear to dig out and destroy. Wet weather preventing our working. Put in three hours'. Some entries have newspaper cuttings included. When Kath left for her New Zealand tour in September 1972, Bill Mewett took over the journal entries. Entries on activities are made by others. Kath's entries become more of a diary as time progresses with personal activities, her health, general observations (like the weather), rather than just what work was done around Moongalba. By the beginning of 1976 most entries are from visitors to Moongalba.
