More information

Nyinkka Nyunyu (pronounced ny-ink-a ny-oo ny-oo) is a fascinating and unique art, culture and interpretive centre, which offers visitors the opportunity to learn about Aboriginal life, history and land in the Tennant Creek region.

Sitting on Warumungu land, the centre's focus is the sacred creation site of the Nyinkka (spiky tailed goanna). View the informative three-dimensional displays created by Warumungu artists, reflecting their rich and diverse history. Learn about bush tucker and traditional medicines from the comprehensive display of bush foods.

For a deep cultural experience, entry to the museum includes an audio tour, which also takes you through the aridzone gardens, interpreting the plants and the landscape through Aboriginal eyes. Follow your tour with a relaxing visit to Jajjikari Cafe, renowned for good coffee, then browse the local artwork, crafts, books and CDs in the retail area.
