What’s it like liv­ing in Maningrida?

Man­ingri­da is a remote Abo­rig­i­nal com­mu­ni­ty in West Arn­hem Land, North­ern Ter­ri­to­ry, and boasts a beau­ti­ful sea­side loca­tion steeped in his­to­ry and cul­ture with tra­di­tion­al landown­ers being the Kunibid­ji peo­ple. A per­ma­nent set­tle­ment was estab­lished in the late 1940s, orig­i­nal­ly as a trad­ing post with Abo­rig­i­nal peo­ple in the area. Man­ingri­da is the major ser­vice cen­tre for the region with a school, health clin­ic, mul­ti­ple food out­lets, two super­mar­kets, ser­vice sta­tion, arts cen­tre, crèche, and a tar­mac air­port with com­mer­cial flights oper­at­ing dai­ly to Darwin.
