about us

Honey Ant Gallery Spinifex Desert Travels

“Our love affair with Aboriginal art developed via many years of travel into central Australia. Steadily we gained an immense appreciation of the Aboriginal people’s culture, humour, ability to prosper in a harsh and unforgiving environment, and staggering artistic talent.” – Rae & Warren Walker (Noosa) and Lisa McLaren (Sydney)

Established in 2005, we are proud to showcase the immense talent of a select group of Aboriginal artists from Australia’s central desert.

Our gallery is named after the honey ant, a fascinating little ant that has learnt to accommodate the harshness of the Australian desert by ‘storing’ food as nectar in its abdomen.  Our art is primarily sourced from country favoured by honey ants.

We are committed to the principles of ethical trade in Indigenous art.  We operate home based galleries in both Sydney and Noosa Heads, and welcome you to visit.  We also present exhibitions throughout the year at various gallery venues.  Keep up to date with our exhibition schedule by subscribing to our mailing list.

All the very best,

Rae, Warren & Lisa
