Great Lake now has the dual name of yingina

Great Lake now has the dual name of yingina

A second round of dual names have been approved by the Nomenclature Board of Tasmania under the Government’s Aboriginal and Dual Names Policy, bringing the total to 13.

Earlier this month dual names were assigned to seven Tasmanian geographical icons including Great Lake which now has the dual name of yingina

The names are applied in the reconstructed palawa kani language following extensive research by the Aboriginal community language revival program.

The other dual names announced were:

    wukalina - to be dual named with Mount William
    titima - to be dual named with Trefoil Island
    laraturunawn - to be dual named with Sundown Point
    nungu - to be dual named with West Point
    taypalaka - to be dual named with Green Point
    pinmatik - to be dual named with Rocky Cape

The assignment of dual names is an important step in the ongoing recognition and preservation of our Aboriginal heritage and culture.
