Our esteemed owner can be really interesting in his talks. He has a great rapport with many of the Indigenous artists of Central Australia. Glad you enjoyed!

There was quite a broad collection of different artwork and souvenirs. I found the artwork to be priced very highly compared with other venues with similar product. I purchased a small hand-crafted item which was advertised (on the wall) as being made in Darwin by...More

Hi Lincoln67. Your review is a bit disturbing as we are not aware of any product in our Darwin gallery that would fit the description that you have given - being hand crafted in Darwin by an Aboriginal person - we don't actually advertise that...More
