We dropped in had a look at the Dunghutti- Ngaku Aboriginal art centre. There was a great selection of wonderful art works which have been painted by local artists. There were also some art work decorated gift items. The art work is reasonably priced and this centre is well worth a visit.

Great place to view or buy local art. August exhibition was fantastic and many local artists showcased their work. Good range of tourist souvenirs also sold there at reasonable prices.

Its worth having a wander around this little gallery. There is a lovely display of paintings as well as quite a few unusual smaller items which would make lovely gifts for friends or relatives.

You enter the gallery via the visitor info centre. There wasn't anyone there the day we went do the visitor info attendant opened u the gallery. There was some really beautiful pieces with varying styles and prices. There are also a few little aboriginal designs items such as table cloths, bush tucker foods, prints and other items. I'd have loved... More
