the backbone of Barunga festival and community life
Over 45 teams from across the NT and from as far as the East Kimberley, Queensland and Central Australia come to participate in Australian Rules football, basketball and softball competitions.
The football program now extends to young women and gives young players an opportunity to shine in front of large audiences. Basketball is keenly contested with men’s and women’s teams. Softball is also very popular at Barunga and is often a family affair with mothers, daughters and grandmothers all playing on the same team.
