Gapuwiyak Community

Gapuwiyak is a mainland community located on the shore of Lake Evella near the upper reaches of the Buckingham River. It is 60 air km south east of Galiwin’ku and 115 air km west of Nhulunbuy (220 km by good gravel road). There is almost year round road access to Katherine. The community has an average population of around 1000 Yolŋu people.

ALPA is also one of the main employers of the community, providing real jobs for a dedicated workforce of Yolngu people. 90% of the workers at the ALPA Galiwin’ku store are Yolngu and the store has been successful at delivering training to staff to ensure they have the appropriate qualifications needed for their work. ALPA is the only supermarket on the community, providing a vital service to the community. ALPA also contributes to many local initiatives and events, giving back to the community through an established benevolent program.

Gapuwiyak Contact History

Gapuwiyak developed from being an Elcho outstation. In 1969 it became an independent community. The name for Lake Evella was derived from combining the given names of two early residents and missionary women, Ella Shepherdson and Evelyn Webb. A timber mill for cypress pine operated at Gapuwiyak for some years

ALPA operates the Remote School Attendance Strategy at Gapuwiyak, employing local indigenous school attendance officers who work with schools, families, parents, and community organisations to ensure all children go to school every day. The Remote School Attendance Strategy is an initiative of the Australian Government Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet. ALPA is one of the highest performing service providers based on improvements in school attendance figures. Our grass-roots community based approach works closely with families, schools and other organisations in the community to deliver a service that is sensitive to the needs of the local community, and provides employment to local indigenous people.
