Welcome to the Ku'arlu Mangga (Good Nest) website, and  online store.  Find out about what we do, how you can get involved, and how to support us. We began as part of the Northampton Old School Community Initiative Inc (NOSCII) and that's why there's a few different names for us. We have been making art here for 15 years, and the original Old School community centre began as Aboriginal space in early 1990s-- 30 years ago.

Seroja Recovery Update: Feb 2023

Our art centre and office buildings have been repaired and we relaunched our gallery last August in time for Darwin Aboriginal Art Fair preview as it was our first year in DAAF. It was lovely having face to face visitors and sales again!

Unfortunately we still have a significant hazard in the collapsed verandah alongside the gallery and so we have mainly opened by appointment. We are working hard to overcome this last hurdle and establish regular opening hours from March 2023.

We're going hard - watch this space.
