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.
