Pormpuraaw Art and Culture Centre

2 Thnranthin Street, C/O Pormpuraaw PO, QLD, 4892

Pormpuraaw Art and Culture Centre is a not for profit organisation dedicated to the maintenance and development of Indigenous Art and Culture. It is a remote out back location. We are 680 kilometres from the nearest town. Our road access gets cut off 4 to 5 months of the year due to flooding that comes with the wet season. Our totems are the salt water crocodile and the barramundi. We have three main language groups in Pormpuraaw, Thaayorre, Kugu and Wik.
