More than 100 Aboriginal men from across Australia have been in camp at Mt Keira since Sunday to focus on improving their own health and that of their communities.
The camp, which finishes today, is the eighth organised by Aboriginal men's health promotion charity Mibbinbah and has included a series of health workshops.
"Mibbinbah means men's place in the eastern Yugambeh language of south-eastern Queensland," the group's CEO Jack Bulman said.
"The biggest thing that we do is these national health camps where we have fellas from all over Australia come and create a safe space so they are able to engage and talk about their health issues."
Mr Bulman said that while Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders in general had poor health outcomes, those of the Aboriginal men were the worst.
"Our fellas die on average at around 59 years of age - but in some places this is even younger," he said.
"We worry about our land, traditional ways and roles, health, identity, freedom, culture and children. We worry that so many of our men are in prison and that so many take their own lives."
Mr Bulman said the camps were an effective way of passing on health information to men, who might feel uncomfortable about going to a medical service.
"There's a lot of shaming factors," he said.
"If you're visiting an Aboriginal medical service, because you know all the people, there's always thoughts about lack of confidentiality, of people talking about you."
And that results in men missing very important messages about their health, a gap Mibbinbah aims to address.
"We just finished a session on prostate cancer," Mr Bulman said.
"A lot of the lads hadn't even heard anything about prostate cancer."
While Mr Bulman said the national group "stumbled across" Mt Keira as a site for this year's camp, they have found it an appropriate location.
Uncle Max Harrison and Uncle Dootch Kennedy told them about how sacred it was to their tribe.
