Blanasi Collection

Explore the Collection in detail with our self-guided Virtual Reality Interactive Tours.


Ghunmarn Culture Centre is the heart of the Djilpin Arts, located in our cultural precinct in the centre of Beswick community.

Visit the treasured Blanasi Collection, a permanent showcase of culturally significant art works in the West Arnhem painting style and curated by late Elder and dijeridu master, David Blanasi. There is no admission fee to the Museum and you can take an interactive IPad tour to learn about the artists and their work. Local guides are available to take you through this stunning community-owned Collection.

Ghunmarn also features a retail gallery, where you can browse and purchase local art including traditional pandanus weaving, fine prints, hand cut dijeridus, carvings jewellery and our contemporary textiles range.

Choosing to buy authentic works direct from community enterprises like Djilpin Arts is a great way to support remote Indigenous artists and their families.
