    Injalak Arts and Crafts Association Inc.: Western Arnhem Land aboriginal arts and crafts

    by Gillybob Updated Jun 18, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Injalak can be found in Gunbalanya (Oenpelli) in Western Arnhem Land (permit required from the Northern Land Council).

    Injalak is a community association which maintains many of the skills of the indigenous aboriginal community and income goes toward supporting the local community, assisting its development.

    The gallery has workshop space (interior and exterior) where artists can be found at work, a display area and extensive gallery showing works of art.

    Products for sale include :

    - didgeridus
    - aboringal paintings on both bark and paper
    - carvings
    - weavings
    - artefacts
    - screen printed products, including T-shirts and printed fabrics

    Injalak is open Monday to Friday from 8:00am - 5:00pm.
    During the dry season (from June - September) Injalak may be open on Saturday mornings from 8:00am - 12:00 noon, however it is advisable to call and check first.

    Cahill's Crossing should be crossed with care and first-timers should observe other vehicles first before crossing, keeping to the upstream (right side when ingoing to Arnhem Land) side of the crossing.

    What to buy: Aboriginal arts and crafts with authentication labels which show the artist's information and gives you basic information regarding the piece.

    Injalak can arrange to ship your purchase anywhere around the world; this is a good idea as restrictions with regards to the movement of items which include wood and other natural materials are very controlled within Australia itself and Injalak will put a full customs declaration on your purchase, enabling it to be delivered to your home or collected from your local Customs Office depending on your own country's requirements. I purchase an aboriginal painting on paper which was waiting for me when I returned home from my trip to Australia - it was also a lot less effort than having to take care of it for the further 3 weeks of my holiday which would have meant storage in a backpack for a week before I could even contemplate keeping it flat in a suitcase. Shipping rates are very reasonable.

    What to pay: Maybe a little more than some places but these are authentic articles and you can see some of the artists at work.

    by Rox Written Oct 10, 2002

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    What to buy: What better way to pick up a great souvenir and also put yourself in the draw to win $250,000 AUD. These tickets have some of the most stunning scenery from the top end and they are well worth the purchase for $5.00 AUD

    Good luck
