Culture

Kakadu National Park was established in 1980 later becoming enlisted for its cultural and natural values and also becoming recognised to the world in 1985. But for the people of Kakadu, Jowunj and Western Arhnem Land and surrounding Regions, clans who have lived and thrived in the areas have known for generations the important resources that the land has to offer our people.

Murumburr clan is one clan know as being wealthy because of the richness of bushtucker available from the large wetlands on Murumburr clan country. Neighbouring clans have and visited here, especially during Gurrung time, for sharing of artefacts and bush foods, especially magpie goose and long necked turtles.

Affects still prevalent on the country as our new generations travel the land today.

After the wet season is over Yekke season is smilling with the noisy dragon flies, indicating a changing of the season with smoke filled air and the waters recede and wetlands transform into a magical wetland wonder with fish spawning, barramundi and other big fish eating little fish and crocodile in abundance eating larger fish they easily catch from the run off.

Come share our language, culture and enjoy tasting some of the bushfoods that we enjoy eating every day.
