Yubu Napa Gallery and Gift Shop is a special space featuring some of the top artists from Central Australia and the Top End.  We are a short stroll from Todd Street Mall.

We are dedicated to providing the best quality artwork whilst ensuring the Artists that work with us are treated well by providing a comfortable space in which to work as well as being paid fairly for their beautiful artwork. We have always encouraged artists to try new painting styles and to tell their stories in different ways, which has allowed our studio to showcase some of the most original and contemporary indigenous artworks available.
