On Mirawoong land ‘Waringarri’ is the first indigenous owned Art Centre established in the Kimberley region.  Waringarri is one of the oldest continuously operating Art Centres in Australia.

Situated in Kununurra, in the heart of Miriwoong country, Waringarri artists share the importance of country and culture  while exploring a celebration of colour through highly prized natural ochres.
