Description 

On 23 August 1966, Gurindji/ Malngin leader, Vincent Lingiari, initiated the Walk Off from Wave Hill Cattle Station as a stand against oppressive working conditions and maltreatment of Aboriginal people. The strike lasted until 1975, an event which lit the fire that became the national land rights movement.

Gurindji Freedom Day is an annual commemoration of the Wave Hill Walk Off. We invite you to share our story through a celebration of art, culture, music and sport.
