Lots to see at Mbantua Art Gallery in Alice Springs! Our specialty lies in fine artwork from the Utopia region of Central Australia. If you are after larger pieces of art, or looking for an investment piece, we also have the Mbantua Lane Showcase Gallery which you can view on request. In addition to our paintings, we have created a range of souvenirs and gifts called Utopia Australia Giftware. These items are made using our very own art designs. Royalties are paid to the artists giving them a continuing stream of income. In the Gallery you will also find unique giftwares and jewellery sourced from around Australia including sandstone art from Coober Pedy. When visiting Alice Springs, make sure you have plenty of time to browse through our extensive range of art!

We very much enjoyed speaking to you in the Gallery. It's always nice when visitors show a willingness to learn about and understand the art and culture of our Aboriginal artists.

The selection of art here is quite nice, however very overpriced compared to other galleries outside of Alice Springs. The staff were not helpful at all.
