The Mowanjum Aboriginal Art and Culture Centre is a creative hub for the Woddorda, Ngarinyin and Wunumbal people who live in Mowanjum community near Derby, Western Australia. These three language groups are united by their belief in the Wandjina as a sacred spiritual force and the creators of the land. They are the custodians of Wandjina law and iconography. The centre incorporates a commercial gallery, a state of the art museum, artists studios and hosts the annual Mowanjum Festival in July, one of Australia's longest running indigenous cultural festivals. Bookings essential for tour groups.
