Embracing & Celebrating the diversity of the Never Never

Mataranka Never Never Festival, Fri 18th to Sun 27th May 2018

Mataranka will come alive on May 18-27 as the Never Never Festival returns to the region for 10 days of fun. The Never Never Festival embraces and celebrates the diversity of the Never Never and is a tribute to Jeannie Gunn's famous 1908 novel "We of the Never Never" which was responsible for putting Mataranka on the international stage. The town has united to showcase the magic of the Never Never extending the Festival over two weekends this year. The family friendly festival will be full of culture, music, food, art, dance and sport.

With a stellar cast including renowned Territorian Ted Eagan, (Fri night 18th May for “Back to the Never Never Theme Night”); multiple world record holder whip cracking extraordinaire and Mataranka local, Nathan Griggs; and double Golden Guitar winner Tom Curtain (Sat night 26th May), NNF 2018 is not to be missed.

Cricket and netball fun is followed by RODEO action on Sat 19th. A cracking good time is to be held the next morning at the Mataranka Mega Markets Sun 20th – food, craft, produce, music, jumping castle, whip cracking and more. During the week stop and enjoy the countless attractions Mataranka has to offer before immersing yourself in a weekend of horse sports – campdrafting at its fineness.
