About Djabulukgu Association Incorporated

Djabulukgu Association Incorporated’s (DAI) core philosophy of community development is engaged through skills development and other capacity building programs for our Bininj membership. DAI was established in 1982 with a community development philosophy and is committed to the continued development of Bininj skill levels through employment, training and economic opportunities.

DAI provides member services and operates a number of income generating businesses. From 1988 DAI fulfilled regional responsibilities as the ATSIC approved service provider for the Kakadu Region. In this role it managed a CDEP program, Aged Care and Health Services and oversaw extensive housing and infrastructure development projects.

Throughout this time DAI wavered from its core philosophy of building skills through training and employment due to the vigorous obligation of administering the CDEP and health services. A number of years ago now Warnbi Aboriginal Corporation was established and DAI transferred Kakadu CDEP and Out Station Resourcing Services to this entity. Amongst the aforementioned regional responsibilities, DAI has successfully operated a number of tourism and hospitality enterprises.

Lakeview Park is our cornerstone of business development by way of providing employment and training opportunities to our membership.

In 2010, DAI formed a joint venture with Australian Pacific Tours (APT) named Kakadu Culture Tours (KCT). Our formerly owned tourism ventures include Guluyambi Boat Cruise, Arnhem Lander and Magela Tours are now managed through this partnership.

DAI also owns and operates the Border Store, where again future development of this site will provide business and training opportunities.
The Djabulukgu Association Incorporated acquired the property at 27 Lakeside Drive, Jabiru from the mining company Energy Resources of Australia Limited (ERA) in 1996.

The property was originally established by ERA in the late 1970’s to house contractors undertaking work at the nearby Ranger uranium mine. It comprised a caretaker’s residence, 25 duplex ablution block, 3 laundry blocks, internal bitumen road network and substantial electrical, water & sewerage infrastructure.

In 1997 the property was re-developed in to a self contained tourist accommodation complex with the construction 17 bush bungalows, 12 two bedroom cabins and 18 double/twin rooms. The accommodation was built in a contemporary theme designed by Troppo Architects of Darwin.

From 1997 to 2002 the re-developed property was used to alleviate a shortage of employee accommodation in Jabiru. DAI leased all of its accommodation stock to local businesses & organisations for use as accommodation by their employees.

In 2003 the majority of these leases were terminated and the business re-positioned itself as a tourist accommodation facility.
