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.

Come help us celebrate as Injalak turns 25!!
Our doors first opened in 1989 - so Injalak Arts is officially turning 25 at the end of this year!! To celebrate we are holding a Birthday Party at the art centre on 1st November 2014. The day will be a celebration with a bush food cook-up, Rock Art Tours, dancing, art and craft demonstrations, art and craft workshops, local bands, discount artworks and more. We'd love you to join us.For our birthday we'll also be launching Online Exhibitions so wherever you are in the world you can enjoy Injalak's creativity. Each month we'll present a curated feature exhibition on our website showcasing top quality artworks (held in stock) by some of our established and emerging artists. This gives us the opportunity to share contemporary artworks with our domestic and international audience and you can stay up-to-date with what's happening at the art centre.For updates about both events please follow us on Facebook and twitter.

Dry season frenzy!
We’ve just had three fantastic months of visitors from all over the world coming across the river to our art centre during the Top End dry season with barely time to draw breath. It’s always an excellent time to catch up with visiting partners and welcome travelers. In August we went west to meet old and new friends at Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair for three intense, colorful and very successful days of trading. Thanks to everyone who came to support us.
Don’t forget, the river will still be down for another 3-4 or so months so plenty of time to make plans to visit us and our world-class Rock Art Tours will continue to be available!
Recently posted on Trip Advisor by a fan from California USA: “The art center is as good as anything you will see anywhere, the prices cheap, the diversity and quality of art outstanding and the staff extremely friendly and helpful. It is a rare privilege to be able to talk to the friendly artists outside and in the back. I have been to many similar art and culture centers, but this is the best I have seen. Kakadu is absolutely unique in the world and for me the Gunblanya/Injalak day was the best part of a long Kakadu trip. It was a rare privilege to visit!”
