One of Australia’s most beloved and eclectic cultural events, the Barunga Festival, has announced its 2017 program. Missy Higgins, Bunna Laurie, Skinnyfish Sound System, and Justine Clarke will all take the stage during the three-day celebration. In addition, there are opportunities to learn traditional dance, spear throwing, weaving, damper making, and how to play the didgeridoo.
Barunga is an Indigenous word for “a happy place for families to live,” and that’s exactly what this event represents. Parents can breathe easy bringing their kids, knowing the event is 100 percent drug, alcohol, and smoke free. More than 4,000 people attend every year to hear some amazing music, learn more about the nation’s Indigenous culture, and discover all the delights of the Katherine region.

The Barunga Festival runs from June 9 to 11. Tickets are available now from Moshtix.
