The Ramingiṉiŋ community has a population of 900 people and is located on the edge of the heritage listed Arafura Wetlands in Central Arnhem Land.

There are 11 outstations belonging to Ramingiṉiŋ and the population at these is very much dependent on season and rainfall with occupancy ranging from 6 to 100.

Ramingiṉiŋ was established after chronic water shortages at Yurrwi in 1962 led to Yolŋu setting up the outstation of Ŋangaḻaḻa. This was the original landing site on the Glyde River for the Arafura cattle venture, which was initiated in the 1880s by the McCartney family (who started Florida cattle station on the Goyder River).
