The indigenous community of Yirrkala is located on the Gove Peninsula on the Northern Territory coastline. Overhung with gum trees, red sand paths run alongside the shoreline and lead to the dwellings inhabited by the indigenous communities. At the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka art centre you can admire a wide selection of local artwork including totems, bark paintings and sculpted effigies. Not only will you get a chance to hear musicians playing the yidaki – a traditional wooden didgeridoo –, you’ll also get the opportunity to attend a demonstration of ritual dancing. You might even be invited to some of the propitiatory ceremonies practiced by Yirrkala’s indigenous community.
