'Maali' is the Wardandi word for the black swan and 'up' means place of.
So Maalinup is the Place of the Black Swan, which acknowledges our location here in the picturesque Swan Valley,
Perth, Western Australia.
Maalinup is just 40 minutes from the Perth CBD within Western Australia’s oldest wine growing region. A “must see” stop on any trip to the Swan Valley. Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery is unique to Perth as an Aboriginal owned and operated enterprise offering Aboriginal cultural activities, talks, performances and bush tucker, as well as a gallery full of local Aboriginal art, exquisitely different hand painted gifts and high quality Australian made souvenirs.
Our Aboriginal cultural performances with dance, didgeridoo, storytelling and a bush tucker supper are an interactive evening of education, entertainment and eating.
Specialising in art from the South West, proudly displayed are works by well known local artists such as Primus Ugle, Naomi Grant, Sheila Humphries, Phillip Narkle and Greg Flahey.
Framed and unframed works are available and shipping can be arranged.
Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery is owned and operated by Maali Mia Pty Ltd, a wholly Indigenous owned and operated company.
Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery is open 10am – 5pm Wednesday to Sunday and Monday Public Holidays
(except Christmas day, Boxing day, New Years day and Good Friday)
