About the Area

Wulungarra Community School is situated in the Kadjina community in the Kimberly region of Western Australia. It is approximately 2 hours drive from Fitzroy Crossing and 5 hours drive from Broome, sitting on the edge of the Great Sandy Desert and surrounded by the Saint George Ranges.

The Kadjina community is very remote with limited facilities. It is accessible via 4WD for the majority of the year, however access may be restricted to light planes during the wet season. The Royal Flying Doctors Service provides visits to the community on a monthly circuit.

A combination of Walmajarri, Kriol and English is spoken in the community, with children speaking English to varying degrees as their second or third language. Elders describe Kadjina as a strong community and a great means of continuing traditional culture. The population is small and welcomes those who have a genuine passion about making a difference whilst also learning from the community.
