Why did we choose Gungahlia as our business name?

History of Gungahlia

It all started in 2010 when Lorrie and I were married in a remote island in far west Fiji.  The Minister, when writing on our Marriage Certificate where we lived, by mistake, merged our Suburb of Gungahlin here in the Australian Capital Territory with Australia to create the word "Gungahlia."  The logo shows our love of the underwater and our favourite turtle.  The original photo of the turtle that the logo design was sourced from had been taken in the Maldives in 2013 in Villamendoo resort where Lorrie finished her first diving course.        

We love our logo too!!

The red cross in the logo is symbolic of first aid. The curve that is shown under the turtle, and above the word gungahlia, is suggestive of both waves of the sea as well as the rolling hills of Gungahlin where we live.  The name Gungahlin is a local indigenous word meaning rolling hills.

"The course was by far the best I have done. The trainer was very knowledgeable and made it enjoyable while still covering all the components required. They were flexible in course times and worked around my work schedule. I highly recommend you use this local company if you need to obtain or renew first aid qualifications. ."
