Caring for Country

The town of Borroloola is located 10 hours south-east of Darwin on the McArthur river near the Gulf of Carpentaria. The area is home to the Yanyuwa, Gurdanji Garawa and Mara people. 

For the past 8 years, Traditional Owners and the Borroloola community have been trying to stop new gas projects they say encroach on their Country and threaten the environment and Culture.

Community representative Gadrian Hoosan is helping his community to lead the fight in restoring and preserving the unique and precious land and waterways for future generations to come.

Welcome to NAIDOC.

We acknowledge all First Peoples of the beautiful lands on which we live and celebrate their enduring knowledge and connections to Country. We honour the wisdom of and pay respect to Elders past and present.
