Art & Culture

The world's oldest living culture is found in the Top End, a place that the Aboriginal people of Northern Australia have called home for more than 40,000 years. Here, you can explore rock art sites, sample bush tucker or learn traditional weaving and hunting techniques.

Indigenous art is thriving in many communities throughout the Top End's tropical outback. Visit the galleries in Maningrida, Oenpelli, the Tiwi Islands and Yirrkala, exhibiting both contemporary and indigenous art. While buying art direct from these communities is a unique experience, indigenous art can also be conveniently purchased from the many art and craft outlets in and around Darwin, Kakadu and Katherine.

The Top End is also home to a number of arts and cultural festivals including the Barunga Festival, Merrepen Arts Festival, the Tiwi Islands Football Grand Final and Art Sale, Garma Festival, Kakadu Mahbilil Festival, Darwin Festival and many more.
