My Favourite Rock Art Sites in Kakadu & Arnhem Land

Posted on 01 October, 2020 in Arnhem Land, Culture, Kakadu, Rock Art

Having been a tour guide for many years across the top end, including ​Kakadu and ​Arnhem Land I have been lucky to explore many art sites accessible to ‘Balanda’ (local language for white person).

Injalak Art Centre & Injalak Hill rock art tours

Posted on 07 August, 2019 in Arnhem Land, Culture, Rock Art, Tours

On arrival at Injalak Art Centre, you’re presented with a festival of colours; there are weavings, paintings and screen prints in pinks, purples, oranges, blues and greens, as well as the ochres, yellows, and reds that typify the traditional Aboriginal art aesthetic. The textures delight the senses, from the huskiness of pandanus weavings, to the luxurious roughness of printed silk, and the bark canvases made smooth with months of preparation for painting. But what makes Injalak so different to any art centre you’ve ever visited is the opportunity to interact with artists as they recreate the stories of their ancestors through their art...
