Situated in the historical Lyons Cottage along the Esplanade, Aboriginal Bush Traders is one of Darwin’s most unique attractions. Our retail gallery exhibits a range of authentic Indigenous products, and is complimented by our Café, which focuses on using native Australian products and bush tucker in our menu.
Aboriginal Bush Traders is 100% not-for-profit.
Akaburrakajinama (meaning ‘Lights On’ in the Anindilyakwa language spoken in the Groote Eylandt archipelago) is a striking showcase of the innovation and diversity of practice of Anindilyakwa artists. An exhibition which brings the natural palette and subtle aesthetic already so popular across their much-loved bush dyed jewellery and quintessential scarf ranges, to intriguing and unique statement homewares that will surprise and delight.
