Barunga Festival Preparation

Barunga Festival preparation is in full swing. The Festival is on from the 11th -13th June 2021.

Our work crew have been giving a hand to prepare for the Barunga Fesitval. The team have been mowing to make the community looks nice and giving the Council workers a hand to build shelters.

The pride seen with the crew is so pleasing.

The fellas have even taken on the Job of picking up piles of green waste doing many tip runs, the work hasn’t finished yet with plans to gathering fire wood. Nyirrunggulung-RISE team is on hand if the Council needs a hand, and the crew can’t wait to see the Festival begin.
