Jarlmadangah Burru

Jarlmadangah Burru Aboriginal Community, situated south east of Derby in the Kimberley region of Western Australia, is built around very strong social values and a dedication to the maintenance of Nyikina-Mangala Law and Culture.

The community has a community office, school, women’s centre, operates tourist ventures and community development programs.

The commitment to cultural values, an alcohol and drug free policy and inspired leadership have made Jarlmadangah Burru Aboriginal Community a successful 'building project' with an eye on the future as well as the past.

DAHS currently employs three staff, two whom are local Jarlmadangah community members, and the third also resides within the community.  This clinic is managed by male Senior Aboriginal Health Worker but doctor visits the clinic once a month on Tuesdays and a Nurse when required.
