Goomblar Wylo is an extraordinary Australian Aboriginal man who comes from the Birri-Gubba and Wakka Wakka tribes of South East Queensland. He was born on the famous aboriginal settlement Cherbourg that is north of Kingaroy in Queensland. Cherbourg saw aboriginal people from over 100 tribes lumped together by the Australian Government in a single settlement; this led to different aboriginal tribes swapping ideas, dances and culture. The aboriginal children of Cherbourg enjoyed cultural richness and varied dreamtime stories; Goomblar is the ultimate product of Cherbourg, an aboriginal performer in every sense.
Goomblar is one of the most internationally travelled indigenous artists today; his humanitarian outlook has seen him work with homeless children and inmates in the toughest jails in the world.
