More information

Anindilyakwa Art was established to help the Indigenous artists of Groote Eylandt promote and market their artefacts and crafts.

Items available through Anindilyakwa Art include paintings (ochres and acrylics on canvas, bark and shells), ceremonial and traditional wood works and carvings (spears, woomeras, coolamons, clap sticks, miniature canoes, didgeridoos, boomerangs and carved animals).

Traditional and unique jewellery design using materials only found on the island (shells and seeds), weaving (pandanas mats, baskets and dillybags) using traditional methods and natural dyes are also a popular choice.

The Cultural Centre also plays host to local musicians and dancers to entertain visitors of the Dugong Beach Resort.
