Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people are advised that this website may contain images and voices of deceased people.

Indigenous broadcasting gives Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people a strong voice. It also:  

  • increases social and economic participation  
  • strengthens Indigenous cultural expression and conservation 
  • promotes music by Indigenous artists 
  • supports local culture by broadcasting in regional Indigenous languages. 

Radio in remote communities is a way of life. Local radio stations are a trusted source of news for their communities. They provide people with important information on health, education and community services. 

For these reasons, the Australian Government is a proud supporter of Indigenous broadcasters. 

The Indigenous Broadcasting and Media Program funds Indigenous broadcasters across the country. This program is managed by the National Indigenous Australians Agency (NIAA). For more information email
