Manuel Brown

I’m a Tiwi man of the Takaringuwi (Mullet) Tribe based in Maningrida. I’ve spent most of my life living on the Tiwi Islands where my extended family still live.

I’ve been living and working in Maningrida, with my wife and children since 2015, working in various roles with Bawinanga Aboriginal Corporation, Malala Health and Northern Land Council.

I have also held the role of the Arafura Liaison Officer where I travelled the electorate building strong networks, identifying issues and advocating for the community.

I’ve known the Costa family for over 20 years. 

I want to make sure the people of Arafura have a voice in the Government. I am ready to serve and deliver for Arafura.
