Nyinkka Nyunyu Art and Culture Centre

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Nyinkka Nyunyu (pronounced ny-ink-a ny-oo ny-oo) is a fascinating art centre/gallery and culture museum, which provides visitors the opportunity to immerse themselves in local Warumungu culture, to learn about Aboriginal life, history and land in the Tennant Creek region.

Located on Warumungu land, on the main street of Tennant Creek, the centre's focus is the sacred site of the Nyinkka (spiky tailed goanna). Surrounding the sacred site are arid-zone gardens featuring local bush tucker and bush medicine plants. A visit through the museum interprets uses of these plants, along with a selection of displays handcrafted by Warumungu artists to reflect their rich and diverse history. Museum entry includes an audio tour which also takes you out 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. One of the key benefits of a visit to our Centre is the chance to mingle with knowledgeable local Warumungu, who will take the time for a chat with you. We welcome you to learn about our ways, and look forward to meeting you!
