Gattjirrk Festival 2013 'Healthy People, Strong Culture, Active Lifestyle'

The East Arnhem Community of Milingimbi is winding down after a busy four days of culture and healthy lifestyle with the 31st Gattjirrk Festival.

This years theme - 'Healthy People, Strong Culture, Active Lifestyle' saw people from across North East Arnhem Land participate in the festival.

Festival founder, Lapulung Dhamarrandji, said “Building bridges, connecting cultures is the foundation of the Gattjirrk Yolŋu Aboriginal Corporation and this event has brought bukmak, everyone together: Yolŋu ga Balanda (Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal people). It's been a great success."
