Pormpuraaw Cultural Festival and Bull Ride

Pormpuraaw Cultural Festival and Bull Ride

Held over three days on the 21st to 23rd of September 2018.

Pormpuraaw is on the west coast of Cape York about 500kms from the tip of Australia, just south of the Edward River. It is home of the Thaayore, Wik, Bakanh and Yir Yoront People. Pormpuraaw is a beautiful community that is well known for its coastal location, magnificent sunsets and abundant fishing experiences.

The community event was held to promote;

• Community and Cultural Empowerment – maintain and strengthen Indigenous Cultural Expression and Conversation.

• Social Inclusion and Community Well Being – Promote Australia’s valuable Indigenous heritage and the unique place of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and cultures in Australian society.

Pormpuraaw Aboriginal Shire Council are planning to build onto this event every year and attract tourists to the Pormpuraaw Community for further economic development opportunities.
