This is a small museum but an impressive one. It is the largest collection of Aboriginal art outside of Australia. It is free and you can watch a film and see various paintings and other works of art. It’s a wonderful insight into a culture we don’t always hear much about.

This museum has an extensive collection of Aboriginal art. Most of the art work was owned privately and donated. We arrived at their opening and were the only visitors. They do not charge admission. Located in an old home on a beautiful piece of property.
