Top Didj Cultural Experience & Art Gallery

Top choice in Outback Northern Territory

Run by the owners of the on-site Katherine Art Gallery, Top Didj is a good place to see Aboriginal artists at work. The cultural experience is hands-on, with fire sticks, spear throwing, painting and basket weaving, and is a somewhat more dynamic take than many staged Indigenous encounters for travellers.
