Mainie Aboriginal Art Gallery and Retail Shop Cairns

Galleries, Museums and Collections

The Mainie Aboriginal Art Gallery is located less than 2 kilometres from the Cairns CBD.

The artwork and Artists are from Utopia, North east of Alice Springs and Yuendumu in the Northern Territory. The Aboriginal arts centres are located on the remote desert homelands of the artists, where there is an unbroken connection to their traditional Aboriginal culture and languages. The impeccable provenance and irreplaceable cultural significance of the artworks created by the Utopia and Warlukurlangu artists have made their paintings highly sought after by major fine art galleries and museums around the world.

Mainie is an approved Indigenous Art Code dealer member and all artworks are presented with a Certificate of Authenticity.

The spacious and fully air-conditioned Mainie gallery also has artworks by North Queensland Aboriginal artists on display, as well as locally handcrafted artefacts such as Rhythm sticks, boomerangs and didgeridoos. The gallery gift shop stocks a stunning collection of luxurious, authentic and unique Aboriginal designed fashions including beautifully boxed handmade silk scarves, wraps, kaftan tops, men’s silk ties and pocket squares.
Mainie is Indigenous-owned and is a certified member of Supply Nation.
