First Nations Seed Bank

Home to the Award-Winning First Nation's Seed Bank, come and discover over 160 varieties of unique bush foods and plant medicines.

Since it's founding, First-Nations Seed Bank has been a small-scale initiative to save seeds, conserve biodiversity and to stand with Indigenous communities for cultural protection of our traditional foods and medicines. Using community biodiversity registers we record the indigenous knowledge of the seeds, trees, plants and grasses, and reclaim the biological and intellectual commons of our Traditional lands.

what Our Visitors say


“The desert, arid gardens that surround the centre belie the dynamic mad colours, designs of the paintings and artworks that hit you as you enter the gallery, such a contrast, confident colourful work, such fun. The artworks were vibrant and engaging. The formal exhibitions were also interesting, dioramas telling the often bitter story of black life and white life during I hope past times, some wonderful prints of local plants as well as artifacts and edible plants thoughtfully displayed. The staff and artists were also just great, helpful and knowledgeable. A very good place..”​
Roger Brady
“Our visit to the Centre has been a highlight of our NT holiday. Do yourself a favour and ensure you visit it when in the region. Gerry gave a thoughtful tour and we learnt lots about local art, bush tucker and history. It was good to hear more about Banka Banka Station and land rights. The Centre is very modern with fascinating exhibits and beautiful, well priced art for sale. Outside the Centre you see bush tucker species and a sacred site. I really liked seeing how the boomerang wood was selected. The toilet s are clean and there is plenty of parking..”​
Tina Sanders
“We visited the Art and Culture centre on the 19/5/21 and were fortunate enough to meet the Artist in Residence Bevil Stanley at the end of our tour through the Centre. Bevil showed us many of his stunning portraits he had painted. These were all painted in the one colour with such wonderful facial expressions. He gave us a real insight into the Centre and his passion for the Indigenous Culture made the whole experience very special for us. A real highlight for our trip from SA to the NT.
