Strehlow Research Centre

The Strehlow Research Centre was built by the Northern Territory Government to safely house the Strehlow Collection which is used as a cultural resource by aboriginal people, academic researchers and interested members of the general public when appropriate and, if necessary, sanctioned by aboriginal elders.

Collections

The Strehlow Research Centre, established in 1991 under the Strehlow Research Centre Act, serves as a keeping place for cultural material relating to the aboriginal people of central Australia. The collection was accumulated between 1932 and 1978 and reflects both a sacred and open range of artefacts, including film, photographs, texts, maps, genealogies, correspondence and ceremonial objects.
