Art Fair Celebrates Australia's Aboriginal Culture

Those who want to experience something distinct and unique in Australia will appreciate the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair, which returns for a second year from August 19-22.

The Cairns Indigenous Art Fair is an annual boutique art market for showcasing the vibrant traditional and contemporary art work by Aboriginal artists that are indigenous to the state of Queensland in the northeast of Australia.

In 2009, 10,000 people came to the inaugural Cairns Indigenous Art Fair. Artist participation is by invitation only, and in 2009, the work of over 150 Aboriginal artists born or based in Queensland was sold and exhibited. The performance program of dance and music, along with the artists’ talks and demonstrations and children’s art station transformed the event from a traditional art market into a rich experience of Aboriginal art and cultures.

Local aboriginal tour operators have incorporated the Art Fair in their tours, giving visitors the opportunity to learn and experience the aboriginal culture, both in Cairns and the surrounding areas.
