Yolŋu Radio is a community development radio station providing information, music and entertainment to the Yolŋu people of North East Arnhem Land. We broadcast in the languages of the Yolŋu people.
We broadcast to six major communities and 30 homelands in North East Arnhem Land as well as Darwin and Palmerston. 13 of our 20 transmitter sites are remote homelands where Yolŋu radio is the only media service freely available.
The aims of Yolŋu radio are:
ARDS produce a range of content for radio including in-depth educational audio programs, community service and event announcements, and traditional music and ceremonies.
Audio Education Programs
We partner with communities, homelands and other service providers to develop audio education programs. Audio programs can be broadcast on radio, podcast on ARDS website or used for activities like face to face education sessions. To find out more email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 89 844174

We work with clan groups to record and broadcast traditional song cycles. We also play a range of contemporary local and national Indigenous music.
Oral histories are recorded with Yolŋu elders and in many different Yolŋu languages.
The ARDS team is developing radio plays as a creative and entertaining way to address important issues affecting Yolŋu people.
