I was taken to Whetung by my relative whom I was staying a few days with. It was a lovely surprise to see so much hand crafted work. Everything from moccasins to trinket boxes made from porcupine needles, native art and dream catchers. There is an interesting Museum downstairs. They have all sorts of beaded jewellery and lots of silverware.... More

A huge emporium of original artwork, carvings in stone, native crafts. From small pocket souvenirs to canoes, paintings to wall coverings. Exceptional quality. There are artists on-site doing what they do. Prices are fair. Staff is knowledgeable and friendly.

If you like aboriginal art than this is where to go. There is a wide range of art from many different artists. You may even get to meet and speak to an artist because they sometimes work on a piece right in the centre. The centre is far more than art. Moccasins, souveniers, art and so much more. There is...

I make sure I visit Whetung a few times each year. The selection of art and talent shared there is worth a visit of about 90-120 minutes. You will be sure to find treasures for yourself or gifts for others...tax free! Great gallery.

When we drove up, the building looked smaller than I was expecting. But then we walked in... It was like that tent from Harry Potter, small on the outside, huge on the inside. From the front you really can't see the whole building, but it's BIG. And it's great! gifts, foods, art, a mini-museum, and friendly staff. Keep an eye... More

This is a very good place to visit and see and learn about aboriginal art and crafts and folklore. Also, to experience the day to day life from not too long ago. Well worth your time. Bonus!! A really nice country drive.
