Mirarr mourn the loss of an important senior man

Publish Date: 4th October 2013

After a long period of illness, senior Bininj adviser, friend, father and husband, Nabulanj Nabolmo Hardy passed away this morning at his beloved outstation of Djirrbiyuk (Whistleduck) in Kakadu National Park.

The Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation and its staff express our deepest condolences and sympathies to his family and community.

Nabulanj Nabolmo was a loving husband, father and senior cultural man whose contribution to the region ensured the ongoing promotion and protection of local land and culture. A highly accomplished linguist, he was especially devoted to educational reform and was the key driver for the development of the Djidbidjidbi Residential College for local Aboriginal schoolchildren.

His passing is of great significance and will be felt deeply by his family, the Corporation and the people of the region.

Those wishing to convey sympathies or messages to the family can do so via Gundjeihmi Aboriginal Corporation’s facebook page:  email: or
