Genuine First Nations Tours, ART & Workshops

About Us


Since 1987 we have been exhibiting First Nations art and craft and conducting cultural awareness through our tours, hands on workshops in universities,schools and educational presentations for Australians and overseas visitors.


Thousands of Australians and overseas visitors have enjoyed learning about the history and amazingly rich culture of Australia's First Peoples. Aborigines lived on Australian plains. No one else there but the wind and rains. Happy and free living as one. Listen, the birds the animals greet the morning sun. For thousands of years, or so it appears. The air was pure, the land was clean. The mountains the forests were pristine. Hunters , gatherer's on the move. How could they know these pale strangers would disapprove. Hunted and chased like animal herds. Far from their lands to be placed on reserves. The dancing, the dreaming, their art to be scorned. The hurting the weeping had now been spawned. Made feel like a stranger in our own land. Please try and help us to understand. What you have taken was rightfully mine. There was no agreement or treaty to sign. Is it wrong to ask that justice be made. For all the broken spirits your foundations have laid. We're only asking that the truth should be known. Please forgive us, if bitterness and anger we've shown. (c) Indijnarts 1987.

Our Values


MISSION: From small beginnings in 1987, our mission has been to keep Australia's First People's Culture alive where possible. We have also endeavoured to educate people from all areas of the planet, of the TRUE history of Australia, pre and post colonization.


VISION: Our vision is for all First Peoples of Australia, to have the same rights of equality and justice as other Australians. Where our culture and history is recognized as incredibly rich and diverse and is valued, as a huge asset to Australian society. We would also hope in the future, First People's history and culture would be taught in our education curriculum in Australia where possible. For our young people to make their health and education 2 major priorities in their lives. To have self belief and not be afraid to leave home and experience the bigger picture. IRON SHARPENETH IRON. To take hold of all opportunities with your amazing gifts and talents, to reach your dreams and full potential. Yahway, Nharthung Tarbarusi.

Cultural Exchange

Cultural Exchange

Senior songmen and artists Thompson Yulidjirri and Bruce Nabegeyo of the Kunwinjku people from West Arnhem Land, yarning with interested onlookers about their artwork at Byron Bay in April 2000. Sadly both men passed on several years ago, however their legacy still lives on through their recorded music, dance and of course their amazing artworks.

Rodney Boschman finishing the artwork on handprints of jarjams from Cohen in Cape York that were embedded into a concrete slab inside the Qld State Parliament gardens, to celebrate the 40th anniversary of the Referendum in May 2007. The kids went to seaworld and also the state of origin. Big thanks to the then speaker of the house in Qld parliament the Honorable Mike Reynolds who initiated this celebration. It was the first time most of these children had been to a major town let alone a city.
