Extremely well presented diorama's, exhibits and video ( and lady on duty, Judy, was exceptionally helpful) .. Then, onto Art Gallery... More

needs some cleaning up to be honest. It is not inspiring at all and could be so much more. Just a little extra work would do it

Visit the Araluen Art Centre and Gallery and see work made by local crafts people next door at Central Craft Studios. Walk further down Memorial Drive and see the aeroplanes on show and the grave of the famous Aboriginal watercolour artist Albert Namatjira. You can also see his paintings in the Araluen Art Gallery

If you visit Alice Springs you MUST visit this amazing precinct. They have wonderful exhibitions of local and indigenous art and craft, an amazing research centre and museum and aircraft museum. Give yourself plenty of time to explore, investigate and enjoy what is one of the country's best.

A must to visit and the staff were courteous especially a lass called Silvana , she made us feel welcome from the start . She had a wealth of knowledge about the area and the numerous art work displayed. People enjoyed her exuberance and professional manner.

Make sure you you visit this wonderful cultural centre when visiting Alice Springs. It has a wide range of local artists and the different styles of painting both traditional and contemporary. In addition there is a small but excellent collection of non Indigenous artworks which give much pleasure.
