It’s a two-day drive from Darwin to Robinson River, on Garawa Country in the NT, just south of the Gulf of Carpentaria. While the road there can be long, the destination is worth it. The annual Waanyi Garawa Biodiversity and Culture Camp brings together Elders, rangers and kids together to keep their culture and language strong.  

While remote communities face many challenges without easy access to country, these camps create an opportunity for dance, storytelling and play, and for community leaders to pass down important ecological and cultural knowledge to the next generation. 

Featuring Aunty Nancy McDinny, Uncle Jack Green, Karen Noble, Donald Shadforth, Dr Terry Mahney, and Kelly Retief. 

Produced by Will Sacre and Eliza Herbert.
