You are welcomed to the Western Aranda Country, and invited to share our stories, our art and our history. Enjoy your visit.


The Hermannsburg Heritage Precinct consists of 16 remaining buildings and a cemetery on 2.5 hectares of land, that are protected under the NT Heritage Conservation Act 1991, as well as being on the National Heritage List.

Hermannsburg Heritage Precinct is accessible along sealed road from Alice Springs (approximately 125 km).

Dressed to thrill, locals enjoying the day...Activities for visitors include visiting the first Aboriginal Mission, see the old mission buildings, tour the Hermannsburg Watercolour Gallery, buy local Aboriginal art including paintings, pottery, souvenirs and Namatjira prints, and enjoy some refreshment in the Kata Anga Tea Rooms.

The area at Hermannsburg today is known by its Aboriginal name ‘Ntaria’.

Hermannsburg is also the point from where you go off-road to visit the Finke Gorge National Park, the famed Palm Valley home to the Red Cabbage Palm (remnants of a tropical rainforest), and the popular Bogey Hole.

The Western Aranda language is the traditional language used within the precinct, passed on by ancestors to missionaries and taught to the children at the old Hermannsburg Mission School. You can also view the Hermannsburg website in Western Aranda.
