The Yabun Festival is an annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture; held every year on Australia Day (January 26th) on the traditional lands of the Gadigal people at Victoria Park in Camperdown in Sydney.
Yabun translates to ‘music to a beat’ in the Gadigal language.

Many popular musicians and other entertainers also appear on stage at the festival. You can buy a huge range of indigenous-themed merchandise at numerous stalls, including clothing, jewellery, art, and craft.
Yabun Festival welcomes everyone to join us in this one-of-a-kind event which honours the survival of the world’s oldest living culture, in-person in Victoria Park, via Koori Radio 93.7FM in Greater Sydney or via video live stream at Yabun.org.au.
Camperdown is 4km southwest of the Sydney CBD. It’s best to catch public transport (train or bus) to the Yabun Festival because road closures and special event clearways are often near the city on Australia Day. The Australia Day Council of NSW also provides a free shuttle bus service at selected times between Circular Quay and the Yabun Festival.
