Yarrabah Arts & Cultural Precinct
The Yarrabah Arts and Cultural Precinct (YACP) is a dynamic space for local artists to create art, strengthen culture and acknowledge history.
Established in 2002, the Precinct is offering unique Indigenous experiences including the Menmuny Museum, the Yarrabah Arts Centre and a rainforest boardwalk, featuring the beautiful Cairns Fan Palm (guided tour can be requested). The precinct showcases Aboriginal culture, art, identity and history through authentic handmade pottery, painting, woven baskets, placemats and textiles.
The region’s first Museum, the Menmuny Museum was built in 1996 and hosts a nationally significant historical collection showing the traditions and impact of Christianity on the community.
The Museum displays many Indigenous artefacts, history and local knowledge and is supported, if requested, with a guided tour of the museum.
