Black Point Culture Centre

Alice Springs Darwin Katherine Ulu r u Kings Canyon

Discover Cobourg Peninsula's rich history, featuring Aboriginal people, Macassan traders, and European pioneers, in Garig Ganuk Barlu National Park.

Browse the Black Point Culture Centre, located at the Black Point Ranger Station within the Garig Ganuk Barlu National Park.

The centre offers travellers a unique insight into the rich history of the Cobourg Peninsula. Aboriginal people, Macassan traders and European pioneers have all made their mark on this land in varying ways. The displays include traditional Aboriginal bush tucker, history and artefacts, evidence of Macassan trading and a history on the Victoria Settlement. A display on some recent history shows how an Indonesian fisherman was blown across from the Indonesian islands in his canoe, which is now showcased at the museum.

To enjoy Black Point Culture Centre you must enter Garig Ganuk Barlu National Park. Permit fees apply and it is recommended to book well in advance especially during the school holiday periods.
