Nayri Niara: Good Spirit Festival

Nayri Niara

Bruny Island (Tasmania) put on a perfect autumn day for festival goers at Nayri Niara Festival, or the Good Spirit Festival.

The Nayri Niara Festival is a three-day gathering of music, ceremony, knowledge sharing and arts, focusing the Tasmania Indigenous communities and their cultures, but open to and inviting people from all walks of life to get involved and have a good time.

On a property at Great Bay on Bruny Island, a small gathering of tents and car is seen in a paddock.

A bit further up from the road, a couple of food stalls and number of information and merchandise tents are scattered in a circle with two large fire places and a kid-friendly gum tree in the centre.

With performers from just across the D’Entrecastaeux Channel, from Alice Springs and from the USA, the festival brings together a mix of spiritual healing practices and plain good fun for the weekend.
