Kurrung Sports Carnival cancelled for 2021

06 July 2021

West Arnhem Regional Council wishes to let valued participants and supporters of the Kurrung Sports Carnival know that this year’s event has been cancelled.


This difficult yet important decision has been made in support of Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation’s (GAC) announcement over the weekend to cancel the 2021 Mahbilil Festival.


West Arnhem Regional Council supports GAC’s announcement and echoes that community safety is at the forefront of these decisions.


While we will miss bringing the football oval and local basketballs courts to life over one fantastic weekend in Jabiru, Council remains strongly committed to protecting the Jabiru and West Arnhem Land communities.   


We hope to bring this lively sports carnival to the region again soon for our sportspeople and supporters!
