Garma Festival

Festivals and Celebrations

2 Aug 2024 to 5 Aug 2024 Annual Event

Join them in the remote north of Australia as the Yolngu clans of Arnhem Land come together for a four-day celebration of art, music, dance, ceremony and song. Hosted by the Yothu Yindi Foundation, Garma is like nothing you’ve experienced before, a place where the freshwater and saltwater meet, an opportunity for cross-cultural exchange.

Daily workshops give Garma guests the chance to immerse themselves in different aspects of Yolngu culture, while the Key Forum policy conference hosts discussions and debates on major issues. The stunning outdoor Gapan art gallery – lit up under the stars – is a sight to behold, while the daily bunggul (ceremonial dance) at sunset is not to be missed.
