Beswick (also known as Wugularr) community lies on the South Western corner of Arnhem Land, Northern Territory, on the traditional land of the Jawoyn people. Along with Jawoyn, Wugularr is home to people from Dalabon, Rembarrnga, Mialli and Rittharngu/Wagalak language groups, all connected by kinship and family ties from North, Central and West Arnhem Land, and East as far as Numbulwar on the Gulf of Carpentaria. Wugularr is home to approximately 450 people who are culturally rich with deep connections to country and Law.
Located on the banks of the Waterhouse River, approximately 107 km south east of Katherine along the Central Arnhem Highway, the community is accessible by sealed road. Sometimes in the wet season it becomes flooded.
Close to the community is a magnificent waterfall and tea tree forest– Malkgulumbu, a pristine sacred site that once a year becomes the venue for the annual Walking With Spirits Festival. Within a half day’s drive from Wugularr are the popular visitor destinations of Katherine Gorge, Litchfield National Park, Kakadu National Park, and Darwin.
