The 2014 Gurrung Sports Carnival will be held in Jabiru – against the backdrop of the magnificent Kakadu National Park – on 5 and 6 September 2014.
Since its beginnings in 2010, Gurrung has built its reputation on drawing footy and basketball teams from far and wide, displaying some of the greatest up-and-coming raw talent in the Top End.
The Gurrung Sports Carnival will run in conjunction with this year's Mahbilil Festival.
A GUNBALANYA School teacher whose work is helping Indigenous students build their expertise in money management has been recognised for her outstanding contribution with a Commonwealth Bank Foundation Teaching Award.
Elizabeth Bowyer joined 15 other awardees, selected from more than 250 Kindergarten to Year 12 teachers across the nation, at the ceremony on Friday 25 July 2014.
THE annual Mahbilil community festival is returning to Jabiru in 2014, to be held on Saturday 6 September. This vibrant community event has been running for many years and brings together music, arts and culture from the Mirarr people and across the Top End.
The one-day celebration of cultural diversity and community is the premier cultural event on Jabiru’s calendar, bringing together a range of local Aboriginal and balanda (non- Aboriginal Australian) arts and crafts, food stalls, entertainment, parades, market stalls and installations.
