    Mimi Aboriginal Arts and Crafts: Real Aboriginal Artifacts

    by cafank Written Jan 26, 2010

    The Mimi Gallery is an Aboriginal owned artists cooperative so what you get here is truly local and reflects local knowedge and experience.

    Artists are often at the galllery working so you can get to talk to locals about their homeland and art.

    The gallery was set up to help local aboriginal people, you will only find original pieces here (no Made in China pieces which you can find in Katherine & Darwin tourist shops) and you will be supporting local culture when you buy here.

    What to buy: Aboriginal art, sculpture, wood-ware, beads, baskets, string bags

    NT rare rock shop

    Katherine NT Rare Rocks

    I used to have a rock collection many moons ago. I was hoping to do some gem fossiking on our journey across the top end of Australia.

    So far, I had only visited one gem shop at Mataranka. Sadly I didn't get to do any gem fossiking in Queensland around the Georgetown area.

    Anyway we left the river and headed back into town the long way .....Zig was showing us the loop that many tourists miss. Well this Gem Shop sign sprang up and I wanted to check it out!! So....screech of brakes and a slight backtrack.... and we drove the short entry way to the NT rare rock shop.

    Well, unfortunately my luck was still down....and the NT rare rock shop was closed!....boohoo! :o(

    But they had some neat huge rocks and gems outside and I could see many more inside by peaking through the glass door and windows..... Check out the huge rose coloured quartz pix in my travelogue!!! :o)

    Katherine Shopping Centre

    This sign made me laugh :o)

    Target 'Country' indeed?..... WTF has 'Country' got to do with Target?.... lol

    Target in Aussieland is just Target..... a typical department store :o) ....Has Katherine claimed the right to be Target Country?..... Personally, I dunno....and I don't really care..... it was just funny at the time.... haha. :o)

    Anyway, having said this and now I've got it off my chest haha.... Katherine shopping centre has it all. ...including a nice cafe that we had a cheap lunch in. If I wanted to pick up some picnic & bbq stuff to take down to the river....then I would come here.
