Place Mornington Island
Mornington Island is located about 28km off the coast of mainland Australia in the Gulf of Carpentaria in Queensland. The population is 1142 (according to 2011 census), the majority of whom are Aboriginal and live in the township of Gununa. A Presbyterian mission was established there in 1914. The mission remained until 1978. The traditional owners of the land and surrounding seas, the Lardil people, have occupied the Island for many thousands of years. The Kiadilt clan, who arrived in 1947 from nearby Bentinck Island, and Yangkaal people also live on Mornington Island. In 1978, the Queensland government and the Australian government cooperated to create a local government authority for Mornington Island. Today the Island is recognized for its rich Indigenous culture including its artwork and the Mornington Island dancers.
