Kuku Bulkaway Indigenous Art Gallery, Cooktown.
Owned and Operated By Traditional Owners
This gallery is owned and operated by the Yuku Baja Muliku people. Our artists are inspired by the land and sea country around them. We paint stories we were taught as children about the local bush food and animals.
Telling Our Stories
By painting these pieces, we are sharing our stories with you. All of our artworks are handcrafted and painted by local artists in the Cape York region of far north Queensland.
"Was impressed with the standard of art and jewellery. The sale of art supports the local Indigenous community. The staff were so helpful and happy to talk about the local artists"
Archer Point, Near Cooktown, North Queensland
Custodians of Archer Point
The Yuku Baja Muliku people are the Traditional Custodians of Archer Point, which is located 20km South of Cooktown, North Queensland. Our traditional lands border two of Australia’s world heritage areas – the Wet Tropical Rainforests of Queensland and the Great Barrier Reef.
Important Cultural Places
Our country covers 22,500 hectares and the region is rich in cultural sites which are entwined with fringing coral reefs, beaches, rainforests, woodlands, mangroves, salt pans, and sea grass beds.
Our Big Picture
Sustainable Management and Economic Independence
Our vision and gift to Australia is to manage Yuku Baja Muliku sustainably, to ensure that its rich biodiversity and cultural integrity remain for the current and future generations of all people. We are currently establishing walking tracks and camping sites so our home can be shared with all.
The rich biodiversity of the region includes turtles, dugongs, Bennett's tree kangaroos, and striped possums. Furthermore, the region includes some of the most pristine fringing coral reefs in the tropics.
After many decades of neglect and land speculation, Yuku Baja Muliku has recently been returned to our people. We believe that it is our responsibility to ensure sustainable and comprehensive management of this significant region, while also allowing our people the opportunity to strive towards economic independence.
