Nguku Festival


Due to a couple of key festival organisers/musicians falling ill with COVID-19 we have unfortunately had to postpone this festival.

We are planning to reschedule the festival as soon as possible, and will be in touch in the not too distant future to announce the new date.


Join Mudburra Elder, musician and activist Ray Dimikarri Dixon and his musician friends and family Eleanor Dixon, Warren H Williams and the Barkly Drifters for a night of amazing music.

We will celebrate the sacred waters which flow underground and overground through what we now call the Beetaloo Basin, the huge area of the Roper Gulf and Barkly being targeted by fracking companies, coming to the surface at the beautiful Mataranka Springs. 

Mataranka Springs

Camp at the Mataranka homestead, and the following morning we will come together for a series of small group facilitated discussions on how we can all be involved in the ongoing fight to protect these waters from large-scale fracking. 

Entry to the concert is free (camping fees apply at the homestead), though donations to help cover the costs so we can put this concert again next year are much appreciated. 

Mudburra Elder, musician and activist Ray Dimikarri Dixon and friends host a night of music celebrating sacred waters of the Beetaloo Basin.

When: 4pm - 10pm, Saturday 16 April
Where: Mataranka Homestead
