Does the combination of pottery and pristine views sound like your idea of a swell time? Then you'll want to put Hermannsburg Potters on your map. Based at the remote foothills of the MacDonnell Ranges, about 90 minutes from Alice Springs, the gallery brings to life its sparkling surroundings with masterfully painted, hand-built terracotta pots.

Drawing inspiration from Country and culture, talented Western Arrarnta artists depict everything from family stories and history to soaring birds, bush tucker and poetic glimpses of everyday life. Washed in vibrant watercolour-style landscape painting, each piece of pottery looks and feels completely unique. Entry is by donation, which will have you supporting a 30-year legacy of intergenerational learning. You will need to make a booking.
