Become a retailer

We are always looking for new retailers. If you would like to stock our fabrics or product range, we’d love to hear from you.


Volunteer opportunities occasionally exist for people who are ready to roll up their sleeves, work hard and have a meaningful experience. If you are able to self-fund your return trip to Maningrida, contact us to discuss opportunities and permit requirements.


Online sales are the best way to support the sustained economic independence of our member artists. We’re in a really remote region of northern Australia, 500 km by road from Darwin, and the roads are often flooded and impassable. When you buy from us online, you’re helping Babbarra artists to generate an income through every season. Visit our shop.


We are a small social enterprise with limited external support. Whether you can invest a little or a lot, every donation is valuable.

Donations over $2.00 are 100% tax-deductible. You can contribute by filling out our secure online form.

Seed funding and in-kind contributions are welcome, please contact us to discuss.

Give to our op shop

Bábbarra Women’s Centre believes in re-using and recycling, and we also love to look great!

We are proud to operate the community op shop, where we sell affordable second-hand clothing, bed linen and towels. We accept all donations, so please send us your unwanted goods.

Our op shop helps the community, because people can afford to buy these items. It’s a good story.
