Bulwalwanga Ran Festival

Bulwalwanga Ran (‘We are strong, you all” in Dhurga language) is a four-day festival celebrating wisdom traditions, both indigenous to Australia and from other parts of the world that honour Mother Nature. It will take place on land that Noel Butler and his family have been the custodians of for thousands of years.

Our intention is to share and learn from different traditions that honour and support Mother Earth. It will be an event that acknowledges our common humanity and gives people from different backgrounds and cultures an opportunity to learn from each other and about each other, something that did NOT take place when Europeans and Aboriginal people first encountered each other almost 230 years ago.

There will be a strong focus on healthy nutrition and we are engaging the services of a number of organisations to make available delicious vegetarian and traditional Aboriginal food. At night participants will be able to experience Aboriginal dance and music and there will be live music performances.

Bulwalwanga Ran is a family friendly festival and on Saturday and Sunday we will have a Kid’s Tent. There will be plenty of fun activities for children including kids yoga, ochre face painting, boomerang painting and Aboriginal storytelling. There will also be the opportunity to sow your own native millet seed which can be taken home in a pot. This kind of seed was ground up and baked to make the world’s first bread by Aboriginal people over 30,000 years ago.
