Ntari/Hermannsburg Cultural Visit- Desert Song Festival

A unique cultural experience forming part of the Desert Song Festival program.

Immerse yourself in ancient and contemporary Indigenous art, culture and language at Ntaria/Hermannsburg- the location of tens of thousands of years of occupation by the Western Arrentte people and the oldest post-settlement town in the Northern Territory. Ntaria is the birthplace of the iconic artist Albert Namatjira and the home of the celebrated Hermannsburg Potters.

This remote community tour to Ntaria includes comfortable transport, morning tea – the best Apple Strudel in Central Australia, a precinct tour, heritage lecture by local archivist and a short performance by the Ntaria Ladies’ Choir.

Take “the essential Australian journey” this September to Alice Springs where, over 10 glorious days, the DSF19 will honour the 'UN International Year of Indigenous Language'. With bold, artistic innovation amid ancient desert landscapes and iconic heritage buildings, singers, musicians and audiences will unite to celebrate Central Australia's unique story of human occupation, resilience and culture.

The DSF19 program provides a smorgasbord of free events and quality ticketed performances. Book early online or in person at the Alice Springs Visitor Information Centre.
