The five-day Kimberley Aboriginal Land and Culture Festival has been held 350 kilometres north of Broome, in remote community of Jarlmadangah.

The festival is the region's largest, with more than 2,500 people coming through, 32 language groups and five cultural blocks.

Festival Director Wayne Barker says the event is a critical spiritual gathering, involving the transmission of cultural knowledge and the linking of emerging leaders of the Kimberley region.
