Feel enriched and uplifted after this once in a lifetime experience with Top End Aboriginal artist Manuel Pamkal. Gain greater insight into his culture during his story telling, create your own artwork during a Rarrk painting class and enjoy a fire lighting and spear throwing session.
Situated at Top Didj & Art Gallery just outside of Katherine, this Cultural Experience gives you the unique opportunity to interact with Top End Aboriginal artist, Elder and Traditional Owner Manuel Pamkal. After he plays a traditional welcoming tune on the didgeridoo, gain insight into his culture as you discuss traditions from tribal life, language, his own family tree and Aboriginal contemporary life. Manuel will then teach you the technique of Rarrk painting before you pick up a brush and paint your own artwork to take home as a souvenir. Following this, you'll have the opportunity to participate in the ancient craft of lighting a fire by rubbing two extraordinary sticks together, as well as a spear throwing session. After the hands-on activities, feel free to look through the Aboriginal Art Gallery and mingle with the resident joey wallabies that tend to hang around.
Bookings are essential.
The Cultural Experience takes place inside, in the comfort of air-conditioning and fans. Only the spear throwing happens outside.

RedBalloon is your one-stop shop for experiences and curated gifts. We’re so confident you’ll love what you get from us, we’re offering this promise to you…
We want you to have the most enriching experience possible, so if this means swapping your jet boat experience for wine tasting then we’ve got you covered. Simply exchange online or contact our Customer Experience Team and we’ll do the work for you.
Not only do we handpick the best experiences for you, we also guarantee you’ll pay the same as you would buying direct from the experience provider. If you find the same experience advertised at a lower standard price on the same day by the same provider, simply take a screenshot of the experience advertised at the lower price and tell us within 30 days of your purchase and we’ll match it.
We understand life gets busy, which is why all vouchers and gift cards purchased have a 5-year expiry. The only exception to our expiry terms is if the experience has already been booked in. We honour the purchase price of our experiences for 18 months. If you book your experience after this time and the price of the experience increases you can either pay the difference or exchange it for another experience free of charge.
We know the trust consumers place in ratings and reviews is tied directly to authenticity. That’s why we use Bazaarvoice. We believe that reviews should represent the genuine, unbiased, and transparent opinion about the author’s experience with a product or service. Reviews are not altered in any way by anyone other than the original author — including corrections for spelling or grammar. Reviews are not filtered, edited, or deleted simply because they are negative or are lower-rated.
The RedBalloon Price Guarantee does not apply to experiences involving accommodation or Experience Providers' own conditional sales.
