Commemorating the repatriation of Mungo Man and 103 other ancestral remains to the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, and acknowledging the Oldest Living Culture on Earth


Nowingi Place, Mildura, VIC

Featuring: Archie Roach performing with Shane Howard, Isaiah Firebrace and more!

The Return to Country of Mungo Man in November 2017, represents a one-time opportunity for a long overdue and powerful acknowledgment of Aboriginal Australians as the oldest living culture on Earth. This long-awaited moment offers space for truth-telling and healing for all Australians, commemorating the oldest modern humans known outside of Africa and one of the first expressions of spiritual consciousness in the entire human journey.

The Aboriginal Advisory Group to the Willandra Lakes World Heritage Area, have requested that this moment is commemorated with a public festival befitting such a momentous occasion. They have asked this event to be free for all Australians. In order to make this dream come true, we need your help. We are currently running a crowdfunding campaign, to help cover the costs of the festival.

Traditional Owners from Mungo National Park will be present as will other indigenous and community leaders with Professor Jim Bowler who made the Mungo discoveries and international indigenous representatives. Return to Country headline artist Archie Roach, young star on the rise Isaiah Firebrace, local man Kutcha Edwards as well as Creative Director Shane Howard round out a stellar line up. We invite you to become a part of what will be a very important step in a journey of national significance, as Mungo Man leads us in Return to Country.
