Visitor information

Visitors are welcome at Maningrida Arts & Culture. Friendly and knowledgeable staff will show you around the large gallery and organise for your purchases to be delivered to you anywhere in the world. The art centre is adjacent to the Maningrida airport.

Opening hours: Monday to Friday 9.00 am to 4.00 pm, excluding public holidays.

On the rare occasions we open on weekends, we let our Facebook followers know.

Visitors are welcome to view the interpretative displays of material culture at the Djómi Museum. Access to the museum must be organised in advance, so please contact us to let us know you want to visit.

Maningrida / Manayingkarírra / Manawukan and the surrounding country, including most of the coastline and tidal waters, is privately owned under freehold title by its Aboriginal landowners. Permits from the Northern Land Council are therefore required to travel to Maningrida. These are free but approval must be granted before you enter Arnhem Land. If you’re travelling with an accredited tour company, your permit should be included in your tour package. Alcohol restrictions apply: Maningrida is a dry community.

Air North flies twice daily between Darwin and Maningrida and communities further east. Alternatively you can travel the 520 kilometres of sealed/unsealed road from Darwin via Gunbalanya to reach Maningrida. Access by road is usually limited to the dry season: June to November. Always check road conditions.

Accommodation in Maningrida is available at the Dhurrkudji Lodge (a short walk from Maningrida Arts & Culture), and the MPA Hotel (a 20-minute walk through the community from the art centre).
