Garma Festival

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The ancient sound of the Yidaki (didjeridu) is a call to all people to come together in unity; to gather for the sharing of knowledge and culture; to learn from and listen to one another.

Each August, the Yidaki call announces the start of Garma, the largest and most vibrant annual celebration of Yolngu (Aboriginal people of north-east Arnhem Land) culture.

It is heard at Gulkula, near Nhulunbuy in north-east Arnhem Land, as about 2,000 Indigenous and non-indigenous Australians and international visitors gather for the annual Garma Festival. Garma is a Yolngu word that describes a 'two-way learning process". Yolngu culture is one of the oldest living cultures on earth, stretching back over 40,000 years, and the Garma Festival is a celebration of that Yolngu cultural inheritance.
