Uluru-Kata Tjuta National Park has two galleries showcasing Anangu art and crafts – Maruku Arts and Walkatjara Art. Visitors to the park are welcome to visit Walkatjara Art in the Cultural Centre to see the artists at work, learn about Anangu culture and explore the stories behind the paintings. Both galleries are located at the Cultural Centre. They are Aboriginal owned and operated, with profits invested back into the local community. The Cultural Centre is a free-form structure built from locally made mud bricks. Its award-winning design was a collaboration between Anangu, park staff and architects. Entering the Tjukurpa Tunnel will transport us back to the beginning of time. Explore the foundations of Anangu culture and the important creation stories of Uluru. Here we can also stock up on any souvenirs we wish to purchase to keep as a memento of our trip to the red centre and the iconic Uluru.
