Our business has been built on a love, dedication, respect, honour and hard work.
We are a small family business run by brother and sister team Daniel and Becci. Becci's sons Yarbirri and Kowunduh, now aged 21 and 20 were the inspiration for the business, originally created with the help of their Dad Howie, a Bundjalung/ Yaegle man and Becci & Daniel's father Tony. We wanted to create a space for local artists to be honoured and respected in the right way, specifically including financially.
Yarbirri and Kowunduh grew up spending afternoons and holidays in the shop and made many lifelong connections with their uncles, aunties and cousins through them sharing their art and creations through Planet Corroboree. Both have worked in there over the years, starting from a very early age :) Kowunduh currently works there and has wonderful energy and input daily.
Over the years we have changed and shifted and now have such a diverse range of products including many Australian and locally made non Indigenous products, jewellry and crystals. We honour all colours, cultures, stories and creations.
Currently we support over 40 plus individual Aboriginal Artists and businesses who we purchase directly from and have developed wonderful friendships and business relationships over these 18 years, and another 40 plus indirectly though licensing agreements including books, fabrics, music, clothing etc.
We support a similar amount of Non Indigenous artists and small businesses as well.
Planet Corroboree is not a community controlled organisation or Aboriginal owned. It is a private family run business that does not profit share. The business supports itself and all that comes into it goes back out to sustain it.
It has helped raise two young empowered beautiful young proud Indigenous men just through it's existence.
If you choose to purchase something through us…you are directly benefiting all those individuals we support, as without Planet Corroboree we cannot support any of them.
Thank you for taking the time to look at our beautiful little unique shop built on love.
