Jamba Nyinayi

Thursday 11th April 2024

In 2023, Cardabia Station, just northeast of Coral Bay hosted the inaugural Jamba Nyinayi Festival as part of the Total Solar Eclipse.

Jamba Nyinayi Festival (JNF) is a unique, local, indigenous arts and cultural showcase owned by the Baiyungu Aboriginal Corporations and spearheaded by Traditional Owner Hazel Walgar. Jamba Nyinayi is hosted and held on Baiyungu Country.

Jamba Nyinayi Festival 2023 included a site-specific choreographed drone light show, along with original local first nation content including music, dance, food and fire. The festival was attended by over 1500 people and garnished a huge success.

After the successes of 2023, Jamba Nyinayi Festival will become an annual, multi night cultural festival, which provides an opportunity for the Baiyungu community to invite people of all cultures, communities  and nationalities to “come together”, share their stories, experience their land and “sit a while”. The festival also provides capacity building opportunities for the Baiyungu people.

The aim in 2024, is to create new opportunities and connections by inviting all people interested in authentic experiences, from all communities to ‘come together’. The festival’s focus is on delivering intimate and inspirational cultural tourism activities shared by the Baiyungu people, Traditional Owners of the amazing World Heritage Nyniggulu (Ningaloo) region in WA.

2024 will see the new inclusion of on-country camping and experience packages. These two night packages are extremely limited.

Packages and tickets for 2024 will go on sale late January, 2024.
