Description

Lirrwi Tourism was established in 2010 to develop, support and promote Yolngu tourism in Arnhem Land. Djawa (Timmy) Burarrwanga from Bawaka homeland was a driving force for this and Lirrwi owes its existence largely to his determination and vision. Lirrwi's main objective is to create a new economy for Yolngu people in Arnhem Land through tourism. It does this by bringing people together to share Yolngu culture, connecting Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people. Working from East Arnhem Land in Australia’s Northern Territory, we aim to combine the range of work traditionally carried out by economic development organisations, tourism operators and travel agents to build understanding between Yolngu and non-Yolngu people assist Yolngu people to enter the tourism industry support Yolngu tourism businesses take ownership of tourism development in our region. Our work recognises the strong links between economic development and the benefits of engaging in meaningful employment, which can lead to greater independence and increased skill levels, ultimately improving physical and mental health, or well-being. For this reason, we strongly support the creation of flexible job opportunities and businesses that take into consideration cultural commitments as well as profitability in remote homeland areas.
