Jilamara Arts and Craft Association was established in 1989 and has built a strong following with art lovers across the world. The artists at Jilamara follow the old Tiwi ways in painting and carving using traditional methods including making designs purely with ochre. The centre has provided the artists an opportunity to develop their careers and many now have their works exhibited nationally and several have international reputations.
A trip to the centre will provide you with the chance to see and meet the artists and how they work and of course the chance to buy some great art. Come and see Tiwi history and culture in the centre’s Muluwurri Museum which holds significant Tiwi artefacts.
Jilamara opens exclusively after hours for all guests of Tiwi Islands Adventures.
