An amazing visit to the watch the local artists and view the ancient painting techniques of the Yolngu at the Buku-Larrnggay Mulka Aboriginal Art Centre in Yirrkala, East Arnhem Land.
Abby our 5 year old absolutely adores Aboriginal Art (& ancient Rock Art) and so for our visit to the Aboriginal Art Centre she managed to find Elizabeth, one of the resident artists at Yirrkala Art Centre who was happy to share her knowledge and skills of her art with her today!
What an amazing experience for her growing mind.
For anyone who knows our Abby (or has meet us along our trip) knows that although she is only 5, she is relentless in asking questions and gaining knowledge from people. It actually becomes quite hilarious as she always starts each question with an ‘Excuse Me’. Thank you Elizabeth. You made a little girls day today!
A visit to the Yirrkala Art Centre is free. There are no set cultural events that happen each day so it really is just a matter of turning up and seeing what happens. The Centre has many resident artist and a free cultural Museum. There is a lot of beautiful art prices to purchase, but we absolutely loved our visit and special art pieces that we purchased from Gapuwiyak Art Centre in Central Arnhem Land.
In writing a combination of our personal experiences and information suitable for potential visitors, we hope to inspire and encourage you to visit this extremely unique corner of Australia and become ethical and engaging tourists of the cultures of East Arnhem Land.
