Spirit of Australia Gallery

Part art gallery, part retail store, the Spirit of Australia Gallery is home to authentic Australian-made product and Aboriginal artwork.


Spirit of Australia Gallery is the only Aboriginal art gallery in Surfers Paradise. The Gallery offers a unique collection of traditional and contemporary Aboriginal paintings by Central Australia's most famous artists, such as Walangkura Napanangka, Gloria, Jeannie and Kathleen Petyarre, Abie Loy, Evelyn Pultara, Margaret Lewis Napangardi and Ronnie Tjampitjinpa.

The more contemporary and modern Aboriginal art is exhibited by Yondee, Trisha Mason, Colin Wightman, Melissa Wright, Grant Paulson, Bibi Barba and others.

You can also see live Aboriginal paintings in store most days.
