Lockhart River

Lockhart River was originally an Anglican Mission, relocated from 'Old Site' south of Cape Direction, to its present location on Quintell Beach. This community is most famous for the Lockhart River Art Gang, a group of artists working from a small studio here.

Contemporary Aboriginal artwork is sold internationally for many thousands of dollars. Visit the studio and see the work assembled for exhibition to the United States and other parts of Australia. You can even try to buy works before they are shipped south - or overseas. Look out for artists who are making a name on the international scene - Rosella Namok, Silas Hobson and Fiona Omeenyo.

Lockhart River is a coastal community with a barge ramp on Quintell Beach serviced by supply vessels regularly. While the community has a well-stocked supermarket and there's both petrol and diesel available, you'd be wise to not let the days slip away from you when travelling. Fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy products are limited to the arrival of the supply vessel. And the shop shuts at midday Saturday. If you forget this, then you'll get no fuel or supplies until it reopens on Monday morning.

A National Park Ranger station is on the outskirts of Lockhart River Aboriginal Shire Council area. Within the community you'll find medical facilities and a police station.

Lockhart River has an Alcohol Management Plan (AMP). AMPs aim to reduce alcohol-related violence.

AMPs vary from community to community. They include alcohol restrictions, home brew bans and dry place declarations which operate within a defined boundary, known as a 'restricted area'. These strategies set the quantity and type of alcohol you may possess in the restricted area.

Penalties apply for possessing or attempting to bring illegal alcohol into a restricted area.

To find out more about AMPs for each community, visit the Department of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander and Multicultural Affairs web site.
