Mataranka Better Half Club inc. is a community group working for the betterment of the small territory town of Mataranka since 1977. The small town of Mataranka will come alive in May 17th – 19th May for the annual Never Never Festival - historic theme night, rodeo and community markets. The Never Never Festival embraces and celebrates the diversity of the Never Never and is a tribute to Jeannie Gunn’s famous 1908 novel – ‘We of the Never Never’ which was responsible for putting Mataranka on the map. The town has united to showcase the magic of the Never Never, extending the festival over two weekends this year - with second weekend being the Mataranka Campdraft - horse and cattle sport at its finest. The family friendly festival will be full of culture, music, food, art, dance and sport.
