To support the marketing and sale of products and services, Aboriginal Bush Traders has established a vibrant hub at the historic Lyons Cottage, on the Esplanade in Darwin. The hub retails products from artists and community arts centres, operates a café with Indigenous foods, delivers cultural tourism opportunities for visitors, and provides for a unique venue to host small events. All profits generated through Aboriginal Bush Traders are returned to community through targeted community development initiatives.

Our retail store acts as a vehicle for the sale and market testing of products and business ideas. In addition to this our retail art gallery specialises in the sale of unique, authentic and ethically sourced products from across the Northern Territory. Our gallery is supported by our Café which focuses on using native Australian products and bush tucker in food. Aboriginal Bush Traders has the only bush food café in Darwin.

  • A small shop with some fine Aboriginal art in a nice old building. A cafe window to order reasonably priced food and drinks. There is no air conditioning in the "shop" with most of the seating for eating being outside. Better in dry season for this reason.
  • Visually inspiring, amazing art pieces and gifts, great coffee and food, friendly and helpful staff.
