Albert Namatjira Memorial

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

The Albert Namatjira Memorial was funded, designed and constructed by friends and supporters of a famous Australian artist.

Namatjira, a landscape artist, captured the remarkable scenery of central Australia in a distinctive style that has become internationally renowned as the Hermannsburg School of water colour painting. The associations of the memorial with Albert Namatjira and, importantly, his continued presence as a part of the history of Hermannsburg and central Australia, along with the personalities of Rex Batterbee, Pastor F W Albrecht and others, provide a tangible acknowledgment of the life of a famous Australian. The Memorial is valued by the local Aboriginal community as a symbol of the recognition of this important Aboriginal artist by non-Aboriginal Australians.

The memorial consists of a monument about 6m tall, constructed of local red sandstone set on a concrete base. A plaque has been installed on the north side of the monument and reads: This is the landscape that inspired the artist Albert Namatjira 28-7-1902 - 8-8-1959 The memorial was unveiled on 22 July 1962 by the then Minister for Territories, the Honourable Paul Hasluck.
