Taking its name from the local Aboriginal term for Esperance (‘kepa’ means water and ‘kurl’, boomerang – put together, it translates as ‘where the water lies like a boomerang’), Kepa Kurl runs an Aboriginal art gallery in Esperance’s historic Museum Village, selling the work of local artists as well as that of South Australian artists.
The spacious gallery is a great way to introduce kids to Aboriginal art. The paintings come with a certificate of authenticity.
The Museum Village is housed in a collection of buildings dating back to the 1800s, with the art gallery occupying the old courthouse.
The Kepa Kurl Gallery is open daily from 10am to 4pm. Call 08 9072 1688
