Original Aboriginal Art

Boomerang Art - Aboriginal Art Gallery

Boomerang Art Gallery is a place where you can admire Aboriginal Art created by some of the most popular and internationally recognised Aboriginal artists from Central Australia. Aboriginal Art is an important part of Australia’s heritage based on an indigenous culture dating back more than 50,000 years.

Located in Southport in the Heart of the Gold Coast and only one hour’s drive from Brisbane visitors can admire the most unique and beautiful Aboriginal paintings but also purchase certified original Aboriginal Art created by our Indigenous artists at competitive prices starting at AUD100.

Overseas visitors buying more expensive Aboriginal paintings can get a tax refund when departing Australia or have their favourite painting mailed to their home address safely rolled into a cylinder and at no extra cost.

Local visitors are offered free stretching and delivery with the paintings ready to hang.

Go come and see us. We are open 7 days between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. It’s one of the best places you can visit to buy a present for your friends or yourself that was created by one of our Aboriginal artists and is uniquely Australian.

Aboriginal Art is purchased and appreciated all over the world and numerous exhibitions have been held in the US, Europe, Japan and many other countries. A significant number of artworks are held in Public Galleries as well as in private collections. Collectors buy paintings from significant artists with an eye on auction outcomes and others simply buy Aboriginal Art because they love it or they appreciate it’s unique link to the heritage of Australia. Quality original Aboriginal Art must not be expensive, many beautiful paintings done by our Aboriginal artists are very affordable. Why would visitors to Australia bring home to the US or Europe from their visit to Australia souvenirs most likely made in other countries like China or Indonesia when original Aboriginal Art accompanied by a certificate of authenticity surely would impress.

Since Boomerang Art was established as far back as  in the early nineties we have in our collection many paintings from artists who passed away already. Other’s on display in our gallery are from artists in their late eighties and early nineties and we wonder whether many of the next generation can take over and create art of the same originality that show the deep connection to their homeland and culture.
