Broome Turf Club

Set amongst large shading trees and a sea of shade sails the Broome Turf Club offers a range of facilities to accommodate all race goers.

  • Local Clubs:Sports

  • Sports:Horse Racing

Description

WELCOME TO THE UNIQUELY BEAUTIFUL BROOME TURF CLUB.
Thoroughbred horse racing in Broome has evolved out of the dust and the Broome Turf Club has arguably become one of the most progressive race clubs in Australia, whilst still retaining a well loved country picnic atmosphere.

The Broome Turf Club is carved out of bush land at picturesque Gantheaume Point, just a stones throw from world famous Cable Beach. This idyllic location perched on the Broome peninsula is surrounded by the Indian Ocean and benefits from the constant cool breezes which are a welcome relief in the hot and humid climate of the Kimberley.

Today the Broome Turf Club has transformed from its rustic ‘pindan’ roots into a relaxing, shady oasis. A day at the Broome races is an experience unlike most others, and one that many international tourists seek to repeat. A highlight of the tourism calendar in Broome, it is a place where members of the multi-cultural community mingle with visitors from far and wide.

The main attraction is competitive racing on the firm dirt track, which is well complimented by the highly social and community aspects of race days. A joyful and colourful scene, the clubs hospitality is enhanced by local and imported entertainment throughout the day and evening.

Set amongst the balmy tropical climate the post race party extends well into the evening with patrons reluctant to go home. A good time is had by all who try their hand at tossing the coins in the uniquely Australian game of two-up, or for those who choose to dance the night away to the sound of great live entertainment.

The nine week race season culminates in the highly anticipated Broome Cup Carnival. Incorporating a vibrant Ladies Day on Tuesday August 12th and Saturday 16th 2014- always a sensational Broome Cup Day - leaves punters yearning for the next years season. Everyone who has ever had the pleasure of experiencing the Broome races always returns, for this is truly ‘the winter racing alternative’.

Martumili Artists was established by Martu people living in the communities of Parnpajinya (Newman), Jigalong, Parnngurr, Punmu, Kunawarritji, Irrungadji and Warralong, and it draws on strong influences of aboriginal art history. The artists and their families are the traditional custodians of vast stretches of the Great Sandy, Little Sandy and Gibson Deserts as well as the Karlamilyi (Rudall River) area.  Most Martu people maintain an entirely independent, nomadic desert lifestyle until the 1950s and 1960s when they walked into settlements in response to a long and severe drought.  Today, Martu people live in their own communities and regularly visit regional centres such as Newman and Port Hedland.

Martumili Artists are an activity of the Shire of East Pilbara, and gratefully acknowledge BHP Billiton as their Principal Partner.

Description

The Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi lands in the Pilbara area of WA comprise of over 11,000km2 of vast mountain ranges and gorges, rolling rocky outcrops and rivers, and spectacular coastline. It stretches from the azure waters of the Pilbara coast to the Millstream-Chichester National Park to the south, from around Whim Creek in the east to just west of Pannawonica.

Importantly, these income streams are allowing NYFL to devote increasing budgets towards our constitutional requirements. Our membership has grown from an initial 320 when the Agreement was signed in 1998 to currently in excess of 1800 people – and is still growing.

The Ngarluma Yindjibarndi Foundation Limited is committed to promoting the interests of its beneficiaries, and particularly the Ngarluma and Yindjibarndi people. Driven by a committed and visionary Board, it is developing business activities which provide revenue streams over and above the initial funding stream from our North West Shelf Gas partners, essential to continue to provide assistance as membership soars over 1,800 as at March 2017. These activities also provide training and employment and business opportunities for local people, and present the NYFL brand in a positive sense in front of resource companies, governments at all levels and the broader community.

Description

Theatre Kimberley has been providing a range of opportunities that enrich and create a sense of wellbeing through community engagement, for over sixteen years in the region. Community cultural development practices are at the core of all the organisation’s undertakings, and these also capture the unique environment and artistic inspiration of the communities in which Theatre Kimberley exists. Theatre Kimberley’s specific objectives are to:

  • Promote resource and develop performance theatre from the Kimberley for the Kimberley and Australia
  • Foster and encourage training and professional development for communities in all aspects of theatre-based practice
  • Develop collaborative creative partnerships
  • Support social and academic learning programmes throughout the community

Theatre Kimberley’s excellent standing amongst the arts and community sectors alike reflects the organisation’s history of quality theatrical endeavours, the scale of productions and breadth of community engagement not matched by any other organisation in the North West, as well as assisting in the establishment of many local artists emerging careers. A social and emotional connection is created with Theatre Kimberley performers and participants who use these projects as a ‘spring board’ for many future theatre training and work, whether in the region, interstate and overseas. Theatre Kimberley offers training and career pathways to artists and facilitates wider understanding of the important role arts plays in making the Kimberley a great place to live. Theatre Kimberley works across ages and cultures. A whole-of-community approach includes extensive work with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people in the region.

There has also been a particular focus in the organisation on developing youth programmes as well. Operating under the umbrella of Theatre Kimberley, Sandfly Circus was begun over ten years ago, providing opportunities for involving children and young people through its classes and community performances. Sandflies is currently made up of approximately 80 children and young people participating across four regular weekly classes. Sandfly Circus students work with a cohort of local trainers in Broome, and the skills of local trainers are often supplement by visiting artists in residence from other places, who are professional circus performers with a demonstrated record. There is one major Sandfly show each year along with smaller performances and workshops in the communities.

Sandflies addresses a number of needs in the local region. Importantly this includes reducing inequalities in access to programmes that enhance skill sharing and essential tools and that may assist young people to make healthy and creative life choices. Participating younger people also gain a chance to share respect and ideas, and to learn from older members through informal peer tutoring. In addition, and as above, young Sandflies are continued to be supported in their entry to further education and/or employment in the arts.

Yinjaa-Barni Art

Description

BRIDGING CULTURES

Yinjaa-Barni Art, a not-for-profit Aboriginal Corporation, is governed by its own Aboriginal board and run by an executive manager. It consists of a group of talented artists who predominantly belong to the Yindjibarndi language group and whose ancestral homelands are around the Millstream Tablelands in the Pilbara region of Western Australia.

In the Yindjibarndi language Yinjaa-Barni means ‘staying together’. At the art centre this finds its expression in the artists’ enjoyment of working together and in their artworks, which, through their visual language, provide a rich and meaningful way of bridging cultures.

The Yinjaa-Barni artists have strong individual styles although all share the common desire to depict what is dear to their hearts – their country, their culture and the plant life that is typical of their region. The older artists have become highly regarded and collected, while the younger painters are quickly making their names. Their artworks have been awarded prizes in regional and national competitions, shown in national and international galleries and have found their way into public and private national and international collections.

Yinjaa-Barni Art is located in a heritage-listed cottage on the main street of Roebourne, a small town between Karratha and Port Hedland in Western Australia’s Pilbara region in the north-west of the state.

A note on spelling: Yinjaa-Barni Art is correctly referenced with a hyphen.
