Malandarri Festival

Enjoy the festivities and immerse yourself in the amazing Indigenous culture brought to you from the four clan groups living in Borroloola.

Known for its strong multi-cultural representation, the Malandarri Festival celebrates both traditional and contemporary arts and cultural practices.

The line-up will be announced in early 2020, including performances from Borroloola clan groups Yanyuwa (Ngardiji Dancers), Garrwa (Wandangula and Blind Mermaid Dancers) and Mara Dancers. Festival goers will be able to see a pop-up exhibition showcasing local artists. There will be family fun activities such as a jumping castle, face painting, dance workshop and soccer and a reading space to share quiet time for parents and carers with babies and toddlers. A marketplace will operate with a stall focusing on the traditional bush food and medicine of the region.

The Malandarri Festival is a family friendly, drug and alcohol free event. Entry each day is by gold coin donation and children under 16 are free. Bring a picnic blanket and enjoy the food available to purchase from the food stalls on site. Gates open at 5. 30pm on the Friday and 2pm on the Saturday.

Come celebrate dance and culture with us on Yanyuwa country.

Due to current advice on public gatherings, please contact the host of this event to confirm it is proceeding as planned.
