The Bidyadanga Emus compete in the West Kimberley Football League.

Originally known as the Tigers, Bidyadanga was admitted to the West Kimberley Football Association in 1983.

In 1990 they won their first premiership after overcoming Beagle Bay in the grand final by 3 points. Their most recent flag was obtained in 2016 thanks to hard fought 8 point grand final defeat of Looma.

Bidyadanga Aboriginal Community (La Grange) is located on the Kimberley coast in WA, 1590 km from the capital city of Perth and 180 km from Broome. The recognised traditional owners of the land are the Karajarri people. Bidyadanga is the largest remote Aboriginal community in WA with a population of approximately 750 residents and is home to the Karajarri, Juwalinny, Mangala, Nyungamarta and Yulpartja language groups. The word Bidyadanga comes from a word for “emu watering hole” (pijarta or bidyada).
