Help us take control of our own destiny

Water has always been part of our culture. It is a symbol of knowledge, and a powerful link to our past. Now we are using water to protect our future.

With the help of some long-term supporters, we have decided to build a business called Arnhem Beverage Company. We plan to bottle the pure water from the natural spring on our land and sell it across Arnhem Land and around Australia.

Making our community strong

Knowledge Water will give the people of our region a healthier alternative to sugary drinks and it will give people in the rest of Australia a taste of our culture.

Knowledge Water will also create real, long-term jobs and make our community self-sufficient without relying on welfare. We will use our profits to fund our school, so we don’t have to worry about it closing.  And eventually, we plan to use our profits to train Yolngu people as teachers which is the key to keeping our culture alive for generations to come.

All our approvals and plans are in place and we are in discussions with a view to locking in a future supply agreement with our first big retailer, ALPA. The ALPA store network serves remote communities across Arnhem Land, the Northern Territory and Far North Queensland.

Now we are ready to start work on building our bottling facility.

But we need your help to make it happen.

Watch the Knowledge Water Story

In our culture, water, or ‘gapu’, represents the knowledge of the Yolngu people. And now we want to share that knowledge with you.
