On Country at Yabun

Gadigal Land, January 26 2017

Victoria Park in Sydney was bursting at the seams again on January 26, with tens of thousands of people spending day with family and friends at Yabun Festival.

Yabun is held annully on Gadigal land, and showcases some of the best Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander music Australia has to offer.

Dancers kicked up dust on the Corroboree Ground, the Speaking Out tent was full of politics, issues and debate, senior community members had respite in the Elders Tent, and junior community members played sport, danced and learned traditional skills.

NSW Aboriginal Land Council was on site across the day, and OurMob went roaming through the celebrations. Check out our photos and special video below.


We pay our respects to the Traditional Owners of the lands where we work as well as across the lands we travel through. We also acknowledge our Elders past, present and emerging.
