Garrthalala is a small Community near the sea in Arhnem Land, approximately 120km south of Yirrkala. It is Yirritja Land and it belongs to Yarrwidi Clan. The people living here now are Marrakulu, Djapu, Dhalwangu, Mangalili, Djambarrpuyngu and Gumatj. We speak Dhuwala, Dhuwaya and Dhuwal. We have a clinic, school, training centre, community office and dormitory. We have power for water and electricity. We use the airstrip to get supplies. This place is special because we have Homelands Teachers and they are from here. They teach in Yolngu and English. There are less than 40 people living here.
