About Us

Goorie Vision provides Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australians the opportunity to tell their stories in a culturally appropriate manner and from an Indigenous perspective.

Business Objectives:

  • To record the stories, history and culture of Indigenous Australia, the world’s oldest living culture, which is being lost at an rapid rate;
  • To train communities how to record their own traditional knowledge, culture, history and contemporary life;
  • To showcase Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Australia to the world;
  • To produce Indigenous educational resources for the nations’ schools;
  • To undertake business using the highest principles of Indigenous protocol and preservation of Indigenous intellectual property rights; and,
  • To help non-Indigenous Australia understand the diversity, complexity and richness of Aboriginal culture

Luke Barrowcliffe’s Background

Goorie Vision’s director, Luke Barrowcliffe is a Butchulla man; Butchulla country extends from the Cooloola Coast to Burrum Heads and westward to Bauple Mountain including the iconic K’Gari (Fraser Island).

Luke was taught Butchulla history, culture and traditions since he was young by the last Turramun Uwuy (chosen leader) and Caboonya (keeper of records) of their people; the late Aunty Olga Miller. This assigned responsibility has afforded him the opportunity to have worked as a Butchulla tour guide on K’Gari at the age of seventeen and to be a representative spokesperson for his family on many occasions in dealings with country over the years.

After a number of years in alternative employment, in 2007 Luke graduated with an Advanced Diploma of Indigenous Studies-Communication from James Cook University and a Bachelor of Communications from the University of the Sunshine Coast.
