A performance event like no other. Be part of a small number of visitors from across Australia and the world who join Beswick-Wugularr Community to celebrate their vibrant culture. Once a year, for one night only, the ancient art of corroborree is interpreted with music, story, song and fire in the spectacular setting of Malkgulumbu on Jawoyn country.
The Wugularr Community invite you to Malkgulumbu (Beswick Falls), a hidden treasure on Jawoyn Land in the South West corner of Arnhem Land. An ancient playground for Aboriginal people, this incredible site is open to the public just once a year.
“With the moon rising over the sandstone ridge and shadows of the Aboriginal songmen and dancers flickering all around, we are on a journey older than any of us, one that began in the age of the Ancestors. It is a place of unforgettable beauty and tranquillity, with a deep sense of what is shared and how the land shapes us all.”
