Djaringo is an Aboriginal owned Registered Training Organisation (RTO) and the training arm of Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation (NAC). It provides training and education opportunities in the Kimberley region to help individuals and communities build a better future.
As a division of Nirrumbuk Aboriginal Corporation, we are managed and owned by Aboriginal members with a board of 12 Indigenous people from Broome and the Dampier Peninsula.
Djaringo is a Bard word meaning ‘people of the country’, to reflect who will be supported by the RTO.
NIRRUMBUK (Nyul Language) is the largest permanent fresh water spring on the Dampier Peninsular. Prior to settlement, the Aboriginal Nations of the region would sustain themselves from the spring and was a permanent source of water and food.
The Nirrumbuk membership chose the name to reflect the Corporations membership and its objectives, to sustain our people in the modern context, providing the opportunity for development that enables participation in Australian society through training, employment, economic development and infrastructure provision
