Award winning ''Tobwabba Art'' is a 100% Aboriginal owned artist collective providing employment and income for twenty-two Aboriginal artists and staff.
Beginning in 1992 with an Aboriginal art and culture course for the people of the local Aboriginal community, presently it is an art and design studio/gallery producing fine art, sculpture and designs for over thirty licensees.
Tobwabba has been successful beyond anything that was hoped for, ultimately it is a business built around culture, not a culture built around business. The business provides one of the definitive models of a successful Aboriginal enterprise.
During Tobwabba''s development it has achieved many accolades such as recognition by the National Indigenous Arts Advocacy Association (concerned with the protection of Indigenous Art), Excellence in Design for many of the products, Excellence in Tourism Awards and the Aboriginal Employer Achievement Award.
A collection of their works can be viewed and purchased from the Forster Visitor Information Centre.
