Terminal building decoration and painting

Funds will assist the community to paint and decorate the terminal building at the Yakanarra airstrip with symbols of their land and culture.


Yakanarra is an Indigenous community in the remote Kimberley and the airstrip is their lifeline, particularly during the wet season. The children and adults want to work together to paint the airstrip and include Walmajarri (the local Indigenous language) words for local bush tucker and animals.
