“The Rainbow Serpent shops at Australia’s major international airports have a strong connection with Aboriginal Australia. They now have an ongoing one with NACCHO. NACCHO thanks sincerely the Rainbow Serpent organisation for its initiative and generosity”

We are impressed with the authenticity, integrity and the variety of the indigenous product range. The relationship the Rainbow Serpent has developed with the indigenous community throughout Australia has enabled Aboriginal artists to express their culture and display their work to an international audience. It has also added credibility to their business and the reputation of Sydney Airport”
