The Buku Larrngay Mulka Art Centre was the place to be the afternoon of Australia Day! Crowds gathered to Reflect, Respect, and Celebrate. The afternoon saw an incredible Buŋgul as part of the Welcome to Country, the announcement of the Citizen on the Year awards, celebration of Australian citizenship for nine Nhulunbuy residents, and enjoyed amazing performances.
All those worthy community members who were nominated for the Australian Day Awards 2021, we thank you and congratulate you on your nomination.
