Barunga Festival, held annually on the Queen’s birthday long weekend (10-12 June, 2016) is now in its 31st year, earning its place as one of the most important community festivals in regional Australia.
The Festival has a strong history of showcasing the Katherine region and supporting remote indigenous communities to come together and celebrate the positive aspects of community life through football, basketball, softball, music (contemporary and traditional), traditional arts and culture. Visitors of all ages are encouraged to join in the festivities and enjoy this unique opportunity to engage with a remote Indigenous community.
The 2015 Festival attracted 4000 visitors from far and wide, and garnered national and international media coverage.
In 2016, this much-loved Territory event promises to deliver an incredible program of music, sport, culture, art, dance, circus, kids activities, workshops, healthy food and many more festive treats – all of which will be revealed in the New Year.
