Gidarjil Development Corporation

Exploring Traditional Land & Sea Country Using 5G-enabled Drones and HD Video

5G Innovation GRant Program

This is an exciting and innovative project which will use the advanced capabilities of 5G to capture video of important cultural sites, share this knowledge visually to enhance storytelling, and also to create commercial opportunities for the Gidarjil Land and Sea Ranger Drone Program.


The Gidarjil Development Corporation is an indigenous owned enterprise, based in Bundaberg, Queensland. The Corporation was established in 2000 by representatives of the Gurang and Gooreng Gooreng peoples to give leadership and momentum to the economic, social and cultural development of indigenous people.

Our vision at Gidarjil is to become economically independent and to help Indigenous Australians participate in the wealth and prosperity of the broader Australian economy.
