If you like Aboriginal art, this is the place to come, aside the Museum. They have nice paintings for sale but pricey. Regardless, one does not have to buy to appreciate the art in this place. I enjoyed myself and it was free.

Excellent selection of Aboriginal Artwork and gifts at very reasonable prices where the royalties go back to the artists and their community. Visited the store on several occasions whilst in Darwin. Very helpful and friendly staff.
