A Special Christmas on Martu Country, Western Australia

The ABV team were fortunate enough to be on Martu country throughout December supporting Newmont Australia Telfer with their Christmas celebrations. Newmont Telfer holds yearly festive events for Martu communities with plenty of food and a special visit from Santa to deliver presents to local schools.

A dedicated team wrapped over 500 presents for delivery to the Parnngurr, Warralong, Nullagine and Marble Bar communities. Most days soar above 45 degrees this time of year, and there can be 5–10 hour long drives between each town. It can be challenging working in this climate, but it was ultimately an enriching experience for our team. 

Thank you to the team at Newmont Telfer, Daniel Tincknell, Emily Siviour, Demi OkelySabino Andriani, and Garth James Preece, who were part of making this possible. The ABV team shared how fortunate they feel to have been part of the journey with Newmont Telfer and on Martu Country. We look forward to all the exciting possibilities for this program in 2024!
