DESCRIPTION

Make the long weekend a week long cultural immersion and Top End exploration!

This much loved Territory event sees people from all over the country descend upon the small Indigenous community south of Katherine where they camp and take part in a program of workshops, dancing ceremonies, didgeridoo making, basket weaving and enjoy plenty of great music and sport from the region. Barunga Festival is an exciting time for the community as they reunite with family members and countrymen from all over the Top End, and welcome tourists from far and near to experience contemporary community life for the weekend.

Join in activities at the Festival after exploring Kakadu, Nitmiluk & Litchfield National Parks in depth as you immerse yourself in Indigenous culture, spectacular & refreshing waterfalls and view an array of wildlife & mesmerising scenery.
