Toorbul Street

Turrbal was the name for the local Aboriginal dialect.

In its modern form, it has been given to a town on Pumicestone Passage and to the point from which travellers now cross over to Bribie Island by bridge.

According to Tom Petrie the Aboriginal people called the Toorbul Point area Ningi Ningi.

Ningi ningi are what English-speaking people call oysters.

The name of Ningi has been retained for the township on the Bribie Road near Toorbul Point.
