Our Name

The word Yarredi comes from the language of the Traditional Custodians of this Region. It is the name of the Cape Barren Geese which are virtually unique to this area.

We have adopted geese as an emblem for our service as a representation of the concept of caring, support and community found in their natural flock behaviours including encouragement, teamwork, shared leadership, companionship in times of illness and disaster, and an openness to others regardless of the flock from which they came.
