Jay Jay you close to that edge there ๐Ÿ˜„

Stunning

Magic. Look after it.. thank you. Ancient culture, ancient wisdom. I gave a lot of respect.

Would be amazing to fly over

Wunambalgaambera country. This group in the Kimberleys has the brightest of futures for the First Nation... but have a look at Mitchell Falls. A torrent.

That’s amazing Thanks guys

2021 will be an incredible year to experience Punamii-Uunpuu (Mitchell Falls), Little Mertens Falls, Big Mertens Falls and our rivers in full flow on Wunambal Gaambera Country.  We are experiencing above average Wunju (wet season) rains. 
This means the roads into Ngauwudu (Mitchell Plateau) โ€“ Gibb River Road, Kalumburu Road and Port Warrender Road โ€“ are expected to be delayed in opening.  We expect to open Ngauwudu, including Munurru (King Edward River) Campground on 1st May, 2021 (provided the roads are open). Please check our Facebook posts during April for updates and road conditions before you start your north Kimberley journey.

Neil Marshall Here is the winner of the 2021 SFF Video Competition.

Congratulations great work

We are attending the North Australia Fire Forum this week.  2020 had the least fires across Northern Australia in many years.  We, the Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation recorded our best fire season in 2020.  Our primary tool for keeping country healthy, is the Right Way Fire Program. Right Way Fire is focused on a combination of burning country according to traditional principles and utilising available technologies.  Each family is responsible for doing right way burning to keep their graa (their traditional part of country) clean and healthy. Their recommendations are put into the Annual Fire Plan and young Traditional Owners take part in annual burning activities. Burning is undertaken from vehicles and aircraft in Yurrma - the early dry season months.  Wunambal Gaamberaโ€™s Right Way Fire program focuses on creating mosaics of patch fires and connecting breaks to 20 percent of the country, mitigating damaging wildfires, occurring to less than 10 percent of country, in Yuwala (October-December), when conditions are more severe. Burning is also done along roads and around infrastructure to keep tourists, Traditional Owners and communities safe.  Wunambal Gaambera Uunguu Rangers and Traditional Owners look after important animal and plant habitats and important cultural sites with fire. Each year fire walks take place through country. These are an important time for Wunambal Gaambera people to teach younger Traditional Owners how to burn โ€œright-wayโ€ while walking the country.  โ€œOur ancestors used right-way fire from generation-to-generationโ€, says Neil Waina. โ€œThey passed their knowledge to us and we will pass it down to the next generation.โ€
