THE YARRABAH Arts precinct is made up of the Art Centre and the Menmuny Museum. The Art Centre is a dynamic space for local artists to undertake the many local art forms and cultural activities including ceramics, painting, weaving, arts and craft, textiles and is available for bookings by the public or community service agencies to engage in or facilitate arts or cultural activity programs.
The Menmuny Museum displays a large amount of Indigenous artifacts, history and local knowledge and is supported, if requested, with a guided tour of the museum. The museum welcomes and encourages national and international tourists, school students and educational organisations for cultural awareness visits.
The Art Centre has a retail outlet and gallery exhibiting locally made art and merchandise for sale to the public as well as the commissioning of works on request. The artists also create art works to support public art in the Yarrabah Community and the Yarrabah Shire Council.
