COOEE History
Turning Interest into Action
Here at COOEE we’re committed to investing our expertise and resources in order to further achieve our cause. Since 2001, we’ve been supporting our Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander families, young people and community members in a variety of ways and measuring our success not by monetary size, but by more qualitative measurements such as the scale and effectiveness of our efforts.
Just imagine what we can achieve together!


The Grasstree (Xanthorrhoea) epitomizes the Australian landscape and is very important to Aboriginal people. It is a very resilient tree, it is tough, it withstands drought; bush fires will burn the foliage and blacken the stump but it still continues to survive and comes back growing strong.

The grass tree resembles that of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander young people and families – through the most difficult times they too come through the storm much stronger and resilient with appropriate cultural support ,education, motivation and encouragement.


Why is the COOEE logo represented by the grasstree?

'COO-EE' we're calling you back to get on track
