Strehlow Research Centre

The Strehlow Research Centre manages one of Australia's most important collections of film, sound, archival records and museum objects relating to Indigenous ceremonial life. 

The Strehlow Collection was put together by Professor TGH Strehlow in his lifetime of anthropological research with the Aboriginal people of Central Australia. 

A significant part of the collection relates to 'men's-only' sacred and secret ceremonies. 

A display on the life and work of TGH Strehlow is in the Museum of Central Australia.

How to access the collection

Access to the Strehlow Collection by researchers and other interested parties is governed by the Strehlow Centre Board.  

Many elements in the collection can only be accessed by the appropriate traditional Aboriginal custodians, or by people acting with their consent and approval. 

Contact the Strehlow Research Centre or go to the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory website for more information.
