Kerry Neill - Director, Goombuckar Creations Pty Ltd

Kerry Neill is a Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi man from the Sunshine Coast region in South East Queensland.  Kerry has been working with Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander peoples in community services and education for the past 11 years.  Kerry has facilitated anger management courses within correctional facilities and schools across NSW, and has been an Aboriginal dancer and didgeridoo player touring all over Australia and the USA.

Kerry has also been involved in the writing and delivery of cross cultural communication, dance, and behaviour management programs across NSW and Queensland.  He has had a strong upbringing in his Aboriginal (Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi) culture and brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to the cultural awareness training programs he facilitates.

Kerry loves working with students to give a cultural understanding of Gubbi Gubbi/Kabi Kabi culture in a fun-filled and memorable fashion. He has always understood that by using the lighter side of life, people participate, people communicate and people remember.
