Maningrida, NT

The town of Maningrida lies on the north coast of Arnhem Land. The town is a secluded paradise, great for keen fisherman and those looking to learn about Aboriginal art and culture. Before visiting, travellers must have a permit from the Northern Land Council. Maningrida’s waterways are teeming with fish. Species such as salmon, barramundi, mangrove jack, golden snapper, Spanish mackerel, trevally and coral tout are regularly targeted. Maningrida Arts and Culture markets traditional and contemporary arts, including bark paintings, sculptures, fibre craft, prints and items of material culture. Conical woven fish traps made by the local men and women are unique to the area, and a popular collector’s item.
