Yinjaa Barni artists, based in Roebourne, Western Australia's Pilbara region, portray their country's wildflowers, river systems, and landforms on canvas in deeply personal works of collective memory.


Colours of the Pilbara infused into textile

Yinjaa Barni Art is a collective of Aboriginal artists who [predominately belong to the Yindjibarndi language group and whose ancestral homelands surround the Fortescue River and Miillstream Tablelands.

Yinjaa Barni Art is a not-for-profit Aboriginal Corporation governed by an Aboriginal board of directors and run by an executive manager. Yinjaa-Barni is Yindjibarndi for ‘staying together’.

Yinjaa-Barni Art began sewing together in a hall at the back of Roebourne’s Pilbara Aboriginal Church in 2005, before moving to the heritage-listed Dalgety House in Roebourne on the banks of the Harding River in 2007.

When you visit the Yinjaa Bani Art Gallery & Studio you get the opportunity to not only purchase some unique Pilbara Aboriginal art but you will also meet the artists and see them creating their artwork.
