Recently visited Araluen Arts. There was a good display of Papunya paintings on show, as well as other Indigenous works, including some Namatjiras. Worth a visit, even if it is a bit of a hike from the town centre.

If you like local art, then it's worth a look. Otherwise there are far more interesting things to see in town.
