Darwin Arts Crafts and Gifts

In the markets throughout Darwin Arts Crafts and Gifts are popular items, ranging from flower crafts, hand cut gem stones, jewelery, and stained glass to locally produced soaps and cosmetics.

Many of these crafts are unique to the Darwin area, produced by local residents and Aboriginal Artists who have been located here for thousands of years.

Other crafts are produced by people who follow the weather, heading north for the balmy months of the dry season, then moving south as the wet season approaches in late September or October.

There are also many interesting crafts from South East Asian countries.
