Named after Jumula Dubbins in recognition of her tireless work for the people in her community.  Jumula was born in 1907 in Western Torres Strait Island, Moa Island.  Friends and family affectionately called her ‘Jummy’.  Jumula worked to find shelter for the homeless both before and after World War 11 for the people of the Torres Strait Islands and vocally opposed discrimination in the church and in the courts.

AHL acknowledges the Kaurareg people as the Traditional Owners of the land on which we operate the hostel. We pay our respects to Elders past and present.
