Mbantua is of the best galleries in the area, with a large number of paintings and a museum featuring works by the famous watercolourist Albert Namatjira. Drop in, get inspired and take home a piece of local art, and also visit the gift shop for a souvenir.


Most people come to Alice to pick up Aboriginal arts and crafts, such as clapping sticks, didgeridoos, spears and paintings, and there are a myriad of galleries and shops to buy them at. Try to experience the variety of shops, however, and just enjoy some casual stroll through shops and stores.
