Compared with other aboriginal art shops, this shop has good quality items and interesting jewelary, whereas the prices are not extremely high as compared to other (subsidised) aboriginal art galleries.

This is a smaller sized gallery designed to display a variety of indigenous artworks. Reasonably priced and well worth a visit. Staff were very welcoming and not pushy at all.
