Maruku Gallery and Walkatjara Art Centre are located in the Cultural Central in Uluru - Kata Tjuta National Park. Just browse around and enjoy the the original crafts and artefacts of the Anangu Aboriginals from the south east and west of Central Australia.

You will find something you like and it will always remember you to this very special place on earth. You will find a range of carved crafts like desert animals, wooden bowls, music sticks, boomerangs and hunting spears. Or the ceramic arts, paintings or other crafts.

If you intend to buy an Aboriginal 'souvenir', don’t wait till the departure hall of the airport, it does have only the average touristy stuff.

What to buy: We loved specially the Aboriginal paintings; because we had to travel still a lot, we had to decide to buy just a small one.

What to pay: We paid only AUD 14,-
You can find artefacts and crafts from a couple of dollars to a huge amount of money.
