About the Organisation 

Rarely do opportunities arise to work in and experience life in such a unique environment.  If you love getting off the beaten track and having the chance to see a part of the world that few have visited, then this adventure will need you to get your fishing rod and outdoor gear ready! 

In April 1972, senior Yolngu leaders and their extended families began moving away from the Yirrkala mission and the expanding mining town, back to their traditional clan land around Arnhem Land. In 1985, Laynhapuy Homelands Aboriginal Corporation (LHAC or ‘Laynha’) was established to assist in supporting these communities. Today, Laynha services some 30 homeland communities with a population of approximately 1100 Yolngu residents across the region, and approximately 300 regular visitors. It is a member based association of the Yolngu, with no statutory or other powers.
