meaning of yilam

The word 'Yilam' is from the language of the Taungurung Nation - the first peoples of the rivers and the mountains in the highlands of Victoria

Pronounced 'yil-um' this word directly translates to 'camp'. However for our people the meaning is much deeper than that.

Yilam means 'home' which of course, speaks to our brand ethos. We want to teach people to connect with and value nature - to treat Country as if it were their home - because ultimately it is.
