Lingalonga Festival for 2012
The Lingalonga Festival is a Batchelor community event to be held on Saturday 4th August 2012, which is the Picnic Day Long Weekend.
Batchelor is the Gateway to Litchfield and a beautiful spot for a relax under the trees for the day, stay out for the night and head to the waterfalls for a picnic on Sunday.
Tons of "Fun for Free"...... for the kids. Market stalls all day, sport, live music, food stalls, clowns, buskers bower, art and craft workshops, waterslides, traditional weaving workshop with 'Jeannie'.
The Coomalie Kids decided the theme for 2012 has to be that greatest love of all..."Food". Vegetable sculptures, fruitbat frenzy, cook offs for all ages and feastings galore..
The weekend also marks the official opening of the Batchelor Museum along with the Quizmasters holding their Quiz Night for all those brainwavers.
The festival is annual and is a not for profit community event. It is hugely popular within the rural sector as a "not to be missed date" - relaxing under the trees while chatting with friends as they wander by.
This event is alcohol free and runs from 8am to dark. Please join us "we would love to meet you".
Batchelor is approx 90kms south of Darwin on the Stuart Highway.
