The Gubbi Gubbi people are an indigenous people of Australia, and a corresponding language group of the South East Queensland coast, stretching from Pine River in the South to the Burrum River in the North. Gubbi means "no". Gubbi Gubbi is a stronger form of no. Kabi is pronounced Gubbi, which has created much confusion in modern times. People call themselves Kabi in an attempt to create an alternate claim to the land. The elders of the Traditional Owners have determined to use the Gubbi pronunciation and English spelling to remove the confusion. Those that now call themselves Gubbi Gubbi are the Federal Court appointed traditional owners, those that call themselves "Kabi" are not. Gubbi Gubbi were previously designated the main anthropological group identified in the South East Queensland region. Smaller groups have attempted to establish claims without success. An example of this is the people who call themselves "Undumbi", whose claim could not be verified to the Federal Court. People in that claim have made subsequent claims in other clan names without success. The Gubbi Gubbi people do not believe in the Rainbow Serpent.
