The Tarerer Festival is an Indigenous and multi-cultural celebration, an invitation to gather together in the spirit of the “meeting of the clans” in the region from which Tarerer takes its name. It is a showcase of Indigenous and non-Indigenous music, film, arts, dance and cultural activities. It remains a focus for enhancing the region’s cultural identity, history and environmental significance, promoting harmony and exchange through the celebration of culture and country.
