The creation of this Arts precinct has focused attention on YARRABAH as a cultural HUB for artistic excellence, social cohesion and economic development that also showcase the YARRABAH Communities cultural identity and history. The Art Centre: was established to provide facilities for local artists to continue culturally creating arts and craft including ceramics, painting, weaving. Well known for its pottery the YARRABAH Arts Centre continues to produce outstanding ceramics and is increasing its presence in the Local, National and International Indigenous creative arts market. YARRABAH Arts and Craft is national and internationally recognized and is testament to the potential economic worth that the Precinct has to offer towards the long term goals of the YARRABAH Aboriginal Shire Council. These future plans enrich traditional practice and offer an opportunity to educate and inform both national and international visitors to regional Queensland. The YARRABAH “Menmuny Museum” holds a collection that is nationally significant at a historical and research level for its ability to reveal the traditions and impact of Christianity on the community, illustrate the journey and genealogy of the residents since the mission at YARRABAH at Cape Grafton near Cairns was established in 1892, and depict the impact of mission and reserve life on individuals and the community.
