The Art Gallery showcases works by artists from the desert and Katherine region.

The Cultural Experience is run by Manual Pamkal, winner of the Tourism NT Brolga award 2013, for outstanding interpretive guide.

After playing a welcoming tune on the didgeridoo, Manuel talks about living the traditional way as a young boy and Aboriginal contemporary life today.

He will teach you the fine art of Rarrk Painting and give you the chance to paint your own masterpiece using a special brush made from a reed called Julk.
