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 accumulated by the late Professor TGH Strehlow during a lifetime of anthroplogical research with the Aboriginal people of central Australia.
Access to the Strehlow Collection by researchers and other interested parties is governed by the Strehlow Centre Board. Much of the Strehlow Collection relates to "mens-only" sacred and secret ceremonies. As a result, there are many elements of the collection which can only be accessed by the appropriate Traditional Aboriginal Custodians, or by people acting with their consent and approval.
A display on the life and work of TGH Strehlow features in the Museum of Central Australia. Non-culturally sensitive material from the Collection is included in the display
