Our Company

You’ll find us at the start of the outback in the picturesque town of Bollon, south west Queensland.  We are located in the 140 year old post office building on the banks of the Wallam Creek – a beautiful setting to showcase a range of stunning Indigenous artworks and introduce you to the world’s oldest living culture.

While we are extremely proud of the selection of artists and artworks we present, you will discover that Nullawokka is more than just an art gallery.  We have a carefully curated selection of gifts, homewares and crafts – all sourced from producers that we have dealt with for many years.  In most cases our suppliers are “hands on” individuals, partnerships or families who, like us, have a passion for what they do.

The tours and workshops we offer are welcoming, personal and aim to stimulate curiosity about First Nations culture.  Bill says “We want to engage and educate people by giving them the opportunity to ask questions and we hope they leave wanting to learn more.  We feel this is a great way to develop interest in First Nations people and our proud history in a gentle and engaging manner”.

 

Our Story

We met at Uluru (Ayers Rock) in 2000 and discovered a shared passion for travel, tourism, art and Aboriginal culture.  Nullawokka First Nations Gallery & Tours is the culmination of our journey together over the past twenty plus years, working in a variety of industries and developing our shared knowledge and skills.

Why Bollon?  Bill is a proud Gwamu/Kooma elder and a traditional custodian of the area.  His father, aunts and uncles grew up on the river bank on the edge of town. Bill himself spent many years in the bush with his grandfather and other jilbis (wise old men) learning traditional ways of tracking, hunting and bush survival.  He has worked as a respected tour guide and cultural officer in some of Australia’s most beautiful and iconic areas but he always knew he would return to his country.

Judith grew up in a small Victorian town, inheriting a love of art, literature and travel from her parents.  She has travelled the world and worked in London and Melbourne in business, investment, retail and event management.  She always knew in her heart she was a country girl and has happily settled into life in a small outback community.
