Opening in January 2011 the Yaama Ganu Centre houses an Aboriginal Art Gallery and café trading as Café Gali. The centre, located in Moree New South Wales, was co funded by Aboriginal Employment Strategy (AES) and Indigenous Land Corporation (ILC). Under the guidance of project manager Sascha Estens and renowned Sydney restaurateur Toby Osmond, the centre offers hands on training to members of the local Indigenous community in all areas of hospitality.

The Yaama Ganu Gallery officially opened on the 31st of March with an exhibition of works Aboriginal Art from the Kamilaroi nation. Works were sourced from artists throughout the entire Kamailroi region including Walgett, Narrabri, Gunnedah, Boggabilla, Tamworth and of course, Moree. The Aboriginal Art Gallery has represented 25 Kamilaroi Artists from the region and the gallery will continue to exhibit and support Kamilaroi artists.

The gallery also sources its Indigenous art from remote Aboriginal communities nationwide. The art is purchased from Art Centres in WA, NT, SA and surrounding islands where selling art is often their only source of income. We have represented over 250 Indigenous Aboriginal artists from communities around Australia to date. We have put Moree on the ‘Aboriginal Art World’ map with our reputation growing and our name spreading throughout the region. "The centre's already provided a full tourist experience for passing travellers, and a fresh new face for the foodie scene for locals."
