Located 90 kilometres south-east of Katherine, Barunga is well known for its annual indigenous cultural and sporting festival which is usually held over the Queen’s Birthday long weekend in June. Aboriginal people from all parts of the Northern Territory gather in Barunga for four days of cultural activities, dancing, arts and crafts and sporting events. Travellers can camp in the community during the festival and participate in the celebration of Aboriginal life, interacting with residents who will share their stories and culture.
