Ted and Duane were fantastic. Very friendly, hospitable and informative. The gallery also has beautiful art. We loved the chat, didgeridoo and damper at the end. Highlight was seeing the rock wallaby. Great leaders of their people. Thank you.

We recently did the Waringarri Art Centre tour. But this was much more than an art tour. It gave us great insight into the aboriginal local community and was highly informative

We were privileged to have Ted as our guide. He is knowledgeable and has an amazing ability to impart his experience and tell us all about the history, culture and explain things. Ted is an incredible human being and they are so lucky to have him as a local leader

I would highly recommend this tour to all visitors to Kununurra as it gives a great insight

I thought this was a fabulous tour! Ted and Duane were very generous in sharing their knowledge of country, uses and tasting of local flora and giving us background in local history. Morning tea was great and I think the most valuable part of the tour was being able to sit down and having a honest yarn with the guys. I believe it is tours like this are invaluable in sharing knowledge and a more balanced view of local history.

We were amazed at the quality of the art displayed and the variety, although most of the ones we were interested in had already been sold. Therefore, I bought a tee shirt with a local indigenous print, which I will wear in memory of our trip to Kununurra.

We did the sunset tour and it started off nicely with a welcome to country. We then visited 2 places around town with local aboriginal art which was nice. We were then taken back to the gallery and given a chance to roam around the gallery. Would have been nice to have seen some artist painting or at least some commentary on the artwork in the gallery as per the tour description. We had already roamed the gallery 2 days before by ourselves. Felt like we were filling in time before sunset. We were then taken to our viewing point for sunset and was expecting some bush tucker, thought it would be a bit more than damper with golden syrup. There was not much didgeridoo playing that’s for sure. The guides were lovely, just felt it was very unorganised.

Dear Kelly, We are so sorry that your experience did not meet expectations and was not up to our usual standard of delivery. The Sunset Tour is a much loved tour. However, we really appreciate your feedback and are committed to continuous improvement as we support our younger tour guides to develop the skills and confidence to ensure Miriwoong culture is maintained and shared with our visitors. On that afternoon, we did have an unfortunate incident which affected the participation of our senior tour guide and I sincerely apologise on his behalf that this affected your tour experience as a result. Your feedback is a valuable contribution to this important cultural enterprise. Thank you for taking the time to comment.

We were lucky enough to have a fantastic and intimate tour through Mirima National Park with local legend Ted Carlton. We learned about the local flora and fauna, the history of the land, and saw a number of historical rock paintings up and close.

Afterwards, Ted and his nephew Milton took us through the art centre to explore the history of the artefacts, taste some baobab fruit, damper and bush honey (incredible!). To top it all off, Ted played us some didgeridoo as we sat around the table.

An incredible experience, I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

Just out of town across from Kelly’s knob entrance. This seems to be where many local Aboriginal artists sell their work. Well worth a visit to support this initiative of the Miriwoong people. Wonderful Art!
