Lands of the Saltwater People
Discover the history, art and culture of Australia’s Top End in the company of curator and activist of contemporary Aboriginal Art Djon Mundine OAM.
Enjoy the artistic highlights of the Top End with the opening of the Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair and the Telstra National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Art Award, two important events celebrating the great diversity of First Nations art and culture.
Uncover fine collections of Aboriginal and Australian artworks at Darwin’s leading contemporary art galleries, including the Paul Johnstone Gallery and Outstation Gallery.
Then, fly to East Arnhem Land and the Yirrkala community with its outstanding Buku-Larrŋgay Mulka Centre, where Yolngu artists exhibit and sell their vibrant contemporary work.
In the spirit of reconciliation, the Art Gallery Society of New South Wales and Renaissance Tours acknowledge the Traditional Custodians of Country throughout Australia and their connections to land, sea and community. We pay our respects to their Elders past and present and extend that respect to all Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples today.
