Footy at Red Gum, MacDonald Downs

Sport is very important to the Alyawarr and Anmatyerr people. Teams from all over the Northern Territory come to Red Gum (on the northern end of MacDonald Downs bordering Utopia) to play throughout the winter months. While the men compete on the football oval, the younger women love to play softball nearby and the older women look after the children, do some painting and socialise.
