Situated in the historical Lyons Cottage along the Esplanade, Aboriginal Bush Traders is one of Darwin’s most unique attractions. Our Aboriginal art gallery and retail store exhibits a range of authentic Indigenous products, and is complimented by our bush food Café, which focuses on using native Australian products and bush tucker in our menu.
Aboriginal Bush Traders is 100% not-for-profit.
THE JANAMA COLLECTION
Aboriginal Bush Traders is proud to present The Janama Collection. This new body of work by Darwin-based artist Eddie Janama Kitching explores the Songlines of his grandmother’s Country.
Through innovative and contemporary forms, Kitching tells the story of the Wampana (Agile Wallaby) and Kununarra – ngar na (Brolga). Songlines that traverse the landscapes of Walu Jara Jara (also known as Cattle Creek).
Surprising colours and shapes articulate Warlu (Fire), Ngawa (Water), Junganyina (Rain and Lightning) and Kalarirri (Frog Dreaming). A body of work that represents a shift in Kitching’s longstanding painting practice.
