While most of our holiday program will run from January 8-12,we will also have an extra week of wiltja building from January 15-19. All activites are FREE and do not require booking.


Build a wiltja

January 8-12, 15-19, 11am-3pm

Join us on the front lawns as we make wiltjas, or traditional shelters, from leaves and branches. Tamaru will show us how to build shelters using Kaurna techniques.


Paint a pannikin

January 8-12, 11am-3pm, drop-in

Decorate your own pannikin with Aboriginal artists Amanda Radomi and Nish Cash. Pannikins (enamel camping mugs) are symbols of home for many Ngaanyatjarra people – there’s nothing like a cuppa tea by the fire! Paint your own symbols of home to make a unique artwork.


Strike a pose

January 8-12, 10am-4pm, drop-in

Dress up and pose with props inspired by Ngaanyatjarra country. The Wilurarra crew have created the ultimate selfie backdrop!

Hailing from Warburton, one of the most remote communities in Australia, Wilurarra Creative is a community hub for Ngaanyatjarra people ages 17-30. They make art and music, run a hair salon, and share culture. 


Please note that there will be roadworks on North Terrace during the January school holidays. Please leave extra time to travel to and from the Museum.
