The Jalumbo Keeping Place at Yarrawarra Cultural Centre houses a cultural collection representing over 4,000 years of Aboriginal life on the Mid North Coast of New South Wales. The collection was created through the Jalumbo Cultural Heritage Research Unit established by the Yarrawarra Aboriginal Corporation and the Garby Elders.
Also nearby are the recently heritage listed Arrawarra Fish Traps – ancient stone fish traps on the Arrawarra Headland of the Coffs Coast are thought to be more than a thousand years old and were used traditionally by the Garby Elders to capture fish. During the 20th century, local commercial fishers also used the traps to store live lobsters for sale.
