The land of the Miriwoong people covers a large tract of Country straddling the borders of Western Australia and the Northern Territory and includes; the township of Kununurra in East Kimberley, Lake Argyle, the Keep River and the Ord River irrigation area.

Established in the late 1970’s, in the heart of Miriwoong Country in Kununurra, Waringarri artists share the importance of their Country and culture.

Waringarri is the first wholly Indigenous owned art centre established in the Kimberley region and one of the oldest continuously operating art centres in Australia, supporting economic independence for artists and their community.

The centre operates artists’ studios and galleries and supports more than 100 artists including painters, printmakers, wood carvers, boab engravers, sculptors and textile artists. Cultural tours and performances compliment the visitor experience with a rich insight into Miriwoong culture.

All proceeds from art sales, art commissions and cultural tourism is returned to the community to support ongoing programs of art and cultural projects.

Refurbished in 2011 the distinctive quality about Waringarri Aboriginal Arts is the sense of an authentically creative and collaborative environment. Artist studios extend into landscaped gardens areas. Verandahs are supported with individually painted poles and pathways of sandblasted pavers present a range of artist designs. The Dawang Gallery is a unique cultural information space presenting selected works from the Waringarri collection complimented with multimedia presentations to share the richness of Miriwoong cultural identity with both community and visitors.
