Opened in October 2000, the gallery is not just an exhibition and performance venue – it aims to be a regional centre for Ngaanyatjarra culture. It is a new period in a program that has evolved from the establishment of the Warburton Arts Project in 1990. Tentative first paintings in acrylic were followed by confident works, also rock art projects, art glass, sound recordings and festival production.

The Warburton Collection is the most substantial collection of Aboriginal art in the country under the direct ownership and control of Aboriginal people. Through national and international exhibitions the collection offers insights into the complexities of the Ngaanyatjarra world.

Tjulyuru Regional Arts Gallery welcomes you with an exhibition program based on the lifestyles, histories and vibrant stories of the Ngaanyatjarra lands.

The Tjulyuru Cultural Civic Centre is located on the Great Central Highway 1000km north-east of Kalgoorlie. This road is promoted as the Outback Highway and takes you from Laverton through to Winton in Qeensland.
