Overview

Anindilyakwa Arts and Cultural Centre operates an art gallery across from the Groote Eylandt Lodge in Alyangula. Groote Eylandt is the largest island in the Gulf of Carpentaria and is located south-west of Nhulunbuy township.

Anindilyakwa Arts & Cultural Centre was established in 2005 and is run by the Anindilyakwa Land Council, supporting over 100 local Aboriginal artists to promote and sell their artwork, creating sustainable and meaningful jobs in the community for the future.

The art centre supports artists from across the Groote archipelago communities of Angurugu, Umbakumba & Milyakburra as well as supporting artists who live in homelands by providing materials and visits to support their artistic development and cultural preservation.

Items available for purchase through the gallery include naturally hand dyed textiles, paintings (ochres and acrylics on canvas, bark and shells), weavings, hand crafted jewellery, ceremonial and traditional wood works and carvings (spears, woomeras, coolamons, clap sticks, miniature canoes, didjeridu, boomerangs and carved animals).
