This remote community gathering of the four clan groups living in Borroloola – the Yanyuwa, Garrwa, Gurdanji and Mara people – has grown into a significant cultural event of the Roper Gulf Region. The festival delivers a dynamic traditional dance program rich with ancestral storylines, accompanied by songmen and women. As well as the traditional dance program, the Malandarri Festival is packed with entertainment including a line-up of local and regional bands. Born from a wish by the clan groups of Borroloola to conserve local languages, the Malandarri Festival audience can also expect to be deeply moved by the power of song.
This is a family-friendly, drug and alcohol-free event. Entry is by gold coin donation. Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the food available to purchase from the market stalls.
