If you are in the market for a significant collectible artwork, want some souvenirs, or would like to find out more about local indigenous culture, make a stop at Top Didj and Art Gallery in Katherine.
The gallery showcases works by artists from the region including the Jawoyn, Warlpiri and Dalabon Aborigines. It also sells works from Arnhem Land, the Kimberley and the Central Western Desert.
Top Didj also offers visitors a two-hour cultural experience - activities and the chance to meet Top End Aboriginal people, ask them questions and find out more about culture, tribal life and living off the land. Book your place to try out traditional painting techniques, boomerang and spear throwing and to learn the art of lighting a fire by rubbing together two sticks.
Top Didj and Art Gallery is set in a bush setting en route to Katherine Gorge. There is a curious population of Agile Wallabies wandering in the grounds and a café where you can relax and have a coffee or cold drink.
The gallery is open from March to October 7 days a week but can be accessible by appointment during November to February.Visit Website
