I already talked about the artistic affluence of Maningrida through its art gallery and Babbarra Women Center. But the community itself is worth taking time to discover. Maningrida is installed on the coast of Arafura sea at the top north of Australia. When I was there, it was impossible to reach the place except by flying, roads being cut off because of the rain. I loved the spectacular things that occurred every single day here : elegant women with colored clothes, the outlines of palm tree shadows, parrots by hundreds in the sky… and every night, the sky would blaze up, the sea would turn golden, its coastlines come to life with fishermen with nets. It was a mix of so much beauty, quietude and simplicity that inspired the urge to just sit and admire all this.
