Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery

Please note, opening days and times may vary, please contact this business before visiting.

Unique to Perth, this Aboriginal owned and operated enterprise offers cultural activities, talks, performances and bush tucker, as well as beautiful artwork by local Aboriginal artists.

Maalinup (it means “place of the black swan”) is also the home gallery of Naomi Grant, who has won more than a dozen major art awards in the past five years.

Exquisite hand-painted glass, woodware and small canvasses are the work of three sisters who have worked with the gallery for 15 years. Maalinup also offers napery, scarves and t-shirts featuring Aboriginal designs. Hand-made returning boomerangs, tapping sticks and other artefacts are made on site.

Bush tucker fans can enjoy free tastings of sauces, jams, chutneys, dukkahs and more, as well as buying those often hard-to-get Australian native herbs, spices and peppers. You can even buy a bush tucker plant.

Entry to the gallery is free. Activities attract fees and require bookings. See the website for details.
