Wiradjuri Art was established as an avenue to provide the people of Australia, authentic aboriginal art. Our paintings exemplify traditional techniques of storytelling containing symbols, patterns and imagery, while also exploring with diverse, unique patterns and colours for a more contemporary feel.
Our art is in the traditional dot painting style with a focus particularly on the Murrumbidgee River area of South West New South Wales. The dot style is appealingly aesthetic to the eye, is a kind of maplike, a bird’s-eye view and with hidden meaning and deeper purpose.

Wiradjuri – My Tribe
The Wiradjuri people (pronounced weeradjuri) are a group of Aboriginal people that were united by a common language, strong ties of kinship and survived as skilled hunter–fisher–gatherers in family groups or clans scattered throughout central New South Wales.
The Wiradjuri people occupy a large area in central New South Wales, from the Blue Mountains in the east, to Hay in the west, north to Nyngan and south to Albury: the South Western slopes region.
The Wiradjuri people are the largest Aboriginal group in NSW. The tribal area has been described as “the land of the three rivers, the Wambool later known as the Macquarie, the Kalare later known as the Lachlan and the Murrumbidgee, or Murrumbidjeri.
