Anbangbang Gallery

Kakadu National Park

The Anbangbang Gallery, featuring vivid Dreaming characters repainted in the 1960s, contains one of the most extraordinary images anywhere in the Kakadu area: linger over the dangerous Nabulwinjbulwinj, a dangerous spirit who likes to eat females after banging them on the head with a yam.
