Warburton Ranges community is in the traditional homelands of the Ngaanyatjarra Aboriginal people, deep in the Western Desert of Western Australia. It is one of the most remote communities in Australia. It is the home of the internationally renowned Warburton Collection and this, with more than 1000 paintings and numerous works in textile and art glass, it is one of the largest collections of Indigenous art held by Indigenous people themselves in the world. Now celebrating 30 years (1989 - 2019), the Warburton Collection in the Tulyurru Regional Gallery is a unique cultural repository of international significance.
