Each year an estimated 2500 visitors gather & camp at Gulkula, a traditional ceremonial meeting ground, historically significant to the Yolngu people of the North East Arnhem Land (NEAL). Its location is remote, forty kilometers on a dusty unsealed road from the township of Nhulunbuy, Northern Territory.

Here, guests from all persuasions gather to experience 4 days of the Garma Festival, Australia’s largest Indigenous led, Indigenous programmed cultural exchange. In its 20th year, guests will share ideas and learn from array of Indigenous and non-Indigenous speakers. They will also witness a spectacular culturally unique dance, arts & song scene, specific to the Arnhem region & the rich Arnhem Land lifestyle. Garma sets a high benchmark as we pride ourselves on showcasing the treasures of the Northern Territory’s mighty Yolngu clans.

Garma proudly provides guests with an extensive & unique display of dance (bunggul), song (manikay), craft, art (miny’tji) & traditional Indigenous knowledge. Yolngu families speak a yolngu matha dialect, & the preservation & maintenance of the local Indigenous language is prominent; English being the second spoken language for many.
