A beautiful art gallery that specialises in local work with informative information about each piece and diversity in the works displayed. A bonus that you can see the artists in action and be involved in the journey.

Was totally blown away by the quality of the artwork and the gallery. The best spot in Kununurra to buy beautifully carved Boab tree nuts. Great opportunity to see and speak to artists at work.
