The anniversary of the handback of Nitmiluk and Jawoyn’s partnership with the Northern Territory Government offers a significant occasion for the broader community to reflect on the successes of collaboration and reconciliation.
Nitmiluk National Park’s natural and cultural wonders make it a shining jewel in the crown of the Northern Territory and a source of great pride for the Katherine region.
Successful joint management has grown the park and tourism. More than 270,000 people now visit Nitmiluk every year. Home to the Jawoyn people for millennia, it’s a place that is shared for everyone to enjoy.
In this spirit, groups and organisations from across the Katherine region have united to grow the 30th anniversary celebrations and create a festival that celebrates Nitmiluk, the wider Katherine region and community.
We invite you to join us as we celebrate Nitmiluk with this special festival
