Yabun Festival

The Yabun Festival is an annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture. It’s head each year on Australia day (January 26) on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people at Victoria park in Camperdown in Sydney. Yabun means ‘music to a beat’ in the Gadigal language.

The Festival was first held in 2001 and is a celebration of the world’s oldest living culture. It’s where you can enjoy live music and traditional Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultural performances, as well as hear panel discussions and participate in community forums on ATSI issues. Many popular musicians and other entertainers also appear on stage at the festival, and you can buy a huge range of indigenous-themed merchandise at the numerous stalls that are on display, including clothing, jewellery, art, craft and music.

A range of children’s activities are also on offer, including sports clinics and fun games run by the NRL and AFL. Indigenous stars from the NRL and AFL are also on hand during the festival for the kids to get a prized picture and autograph from their sporting idols. Best of all, all the activities and events at the Yabun Festival are free! Please note that alcohol is not permitted.

Camperdown is a suburb that’s 4 kilometres south-west of the Sydney CBD. It’s best to catch public transport (train or bus) to the Yabun Festival in Victoria Park because there are often road closures and special event clearways near the city on Australia Day. The Australia Day Council of NSW provides a free shuttle bus service at selected times between Circular Quay and the Yabun Festival.
