Noomool is the first collaboration between the ISX and Pozible - the Melbourne based crowdfunding group. Please support this project. We seek funding for no ordinary documentary. It is a fight to build awareness about the importance of the incredible pristine environment of the King Sound and a culture in danger of being lost. By investing in this project you are investing in the preservation of this incredible natural environment and the spirit of the Mayala people.

Gary Dhurrkay Academy

Gary Dhurrkay

Gary Dhurrkay (4 March 1974-21 August 2005) had a short AFL career. But he was one of the great Indigenous Australian rules football players and a hero and role model for the Yolngu people.

Dhurkkay was a part of East Fremantle Football Club's 1994 and 1998 premiership sides in the WAFL. He was part of Fremantle's inaugural AFL team in 1995. North Melbourne selected Gary in the 1998 AFL Draft. After playing 21 games in the 1999 and 2000 season at North, Dhurrkay retired in mid-2000 to focus on his Aboriginal cultural beliefs and became a leader of the Marngarr community in Arnhem Land, Northern Territory.

At about 5am on 21 August 2005, Dhurkkay was fatally injured in a car accident on the Melville Bay Road, Arnhem Land when his car rolled and he was thrown from his vehicle. He was 31 years of age.
