Meet the Dhimurru Aboriginal Corporation
Dhimurru’s vision is guided by the wisdom of our Elders who founded Dhimurru.
Dhimurru is an incorporated Aboriginal organisation established by Yolŋu land-owners in Northeast Arnhem Land, Australia. The office is located in Nhulunbuy (Gove).
Yolŋu (Aboriginal people of Northeast Arnhem Land) are the traditional owners of lands consisting of approximately 550,000ha. The Aboriginal Land Rights (Northern Territory) Act of 1976 recognises Yolŋu as the owners of this land under Australian law. Dhimurru has jurisdiction over approximately 8,500km2 of this land.
Since time immemorial Yolŋu have managed the natural and cultural resources and have achieved a balance that ensured long term, sustainable resource use for the economic and social well-being of the landowners.
