Wanjoo Maalinup - Welcome to Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery

Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery is a wonderful place to visit in Perth, Western Australia when you want to purchase those hard to find Australian native herbs and spices, gorgeous hand painted giftware and authentic Aboriginal Art.  Drop in to taste jams, chutneys, oilve oils and dukkah.  You can book to experience local bush tucker as well as art and culture.  Dale and Lyall Tilbrook are your very knowledgable and friendly hosts.

'Maali' is the Wardandi word for the black swan and along the Western and Southern cost of the South West, 'up' means 'place of' ('up' changes to 'in' at the border of Wiilmun boodja).  For example if you drive down South West Highway you will come to a town called Wagerup.  When you go inland you will find a place called Wagin.  Waitj or Wej is the emu in local Noongar languages, so they both mean "place of the emu'.  Interesting facts like these abound in our cultural activities and experiences at Dale Tilbrook Experiences/

We are just 35 minutes from the Perth CBD.  A “must see” stop on any trip to the Swan Valley.   Maalinup Aboriginal Gallery is unique to Perth as an Aboriginal owned and operated enterprise offering Aboriginal cultural activities, talks, performances and bush tucker, as well as a gallery full of local Aboriginal art, exquisitely different hand painted gifts and high quality Australian made souvenirs.  Drop in to sample some bushtucker, browse our bushtucker books and wander around our garden with emus and bush tucker plants (this is always a work in prgress and we are happy to share our growing tips with you).  Pick up a delightful souvenir  (don't forget something for yourself).   Talk to Dale and Lyall, they are always happy to engage.    It is a very informal atmosphere.  Leave feeling relaxed.
