We re-opened at the end of January and are now getting organised for 2015. The Bim Gallery was painted last week and the artists and printers are going great guns. The river is still up and no-one can drive in from Darwin/Jabiru yet. So far it's been a bit of dry 'wet season' but now we're getting lots of rain so will probably see the flood plain fill up - good for the sake of all the turtles and other creatures that like water. Hopefully not as much as 2007 when the art centre was flooded! Now is a GREAT time to contact us about shopping - browse our on-line store and if you don't see exactly what you're looking for contact us direct. Send an email to Liz at firstname.lastname@example.org or call her as we have lots of fantastic new wet season stock and no customers in the shop - so let us know what you want. We can respond promptly and send images at this time of the year.

Still lots happening here
Thanks to our dear family and friends who came and helped us celebrate our 25th Birthday. Was a really lovely day and we had a feast and lots of entertainment including printing demonstrations and print-your-own t-shirts. Have a look at our FB page for photos from the day – click here.
We are still really busy working on a range of projects including producing new brochures about the history and heritage of both painting and pandanus weaving. Also, have a look at our products page – we’re uploading some new stock of bags for Christmas that have just arrived from Cambodia. Order quick as we have very limited stock. Or visit us on site – we’re still open five days a week and the river can be crossed no problems at the moment. When you get here check out our new Interpretive Centre and front signage, funded by Tourism NT. Happy to report all our air-conditioning is working – so you can chill and browse.
Letting you all know we’re closing on 12th December for six weeks and will re-open on 27th January 2015 so if you want to visit or order, get in quick.

It’s nearly time!
It’s our birthday party on 1st November and preparations are going full steam ahead. Watch as we upload more images on our Facebook page.
The team is so excited. Bring your binoculars so you can enjoy the extraordinary world-class views from the Billabong House balcony – overlooking Adjumarllarl billabong and beyond to Injalak Hill and the escarpments of the stone country. Count the crocodiles and the hundreds of birds. While you’re there enjoy a cuppa or cold drink. Don’t forget it will be warm so please bring a sunhat, sunscreen, water bottles and camping chairs if you have some. We will provide some chairs but more would be great.
Note: Border Store stops trading for the season this Friday so no chance of hot food, icecream or cold drink on the way through. The ‘big store’ at Injalak has cold drinks and ice creams and (hopefully) hot food but will probably close around 3pm.
