Directions to Tiagarra Aboriginal Culture Centre and Museum

Several buildings are designed to resemble aboriginal huts that were discovered on Tasmania's west coast. Displays tell the sombre story of a mostly lost culture, a people decimated in a matter of decades due to contact with Europeans. There is a walking trail around the headland showing some of the rock carvings (petroglyphs), some of which are thought to be older than 10 000 years.

Tiagarra is an aboriginal word meaning, "keeping place", and the centre looks after approx. 270 rock engravings and 2000 artifacts. There are dioramas that provide information on the lifestyle of Tasmania's original inhabitants.

There are a couple of nice murals by Tasmanian artist Max Angus, well known for his landscape paintings.

There is a good display of indigenous crafts with a souvenir shop selling locally made arts and crafts.

Currently only open for tour groups by apointment.
