Overview
More
Boomerang Art Gallery is a place where you can admire Aboriginal Art created by some of the most popular and internationally recognized Aboriginal artists from Central Australia. Aboriginal Art is an important part of Australia’s heritage based on an indigenous culture dating back more than 50,000 years. Located in Southport in the heart of the Gold Coast and only one hour’s drive from Brisbane visitors can admire the most unique and beautiful paintings but also purchase certified original Art created by our artists at competitive prices starting at AUD50. Overseas visitors buying more expensive paintings can get a tax refund when departing Australia or have their favorite painting mailed to their home address safely rolled into a cylinder and at no extra cost. Local visitors are offered free stretching and delivery with the paintings ready to hang.
