How to identify genuine Australian made products?
Shopping for Australian made and grown products can seem pretty confusing, but it doesn’t have to be. Simply look for the famous green and gold Australian Made, Australian Grown kangaroo logo.

How to check for authentic Aboriginal art & products?
When you buy Aboriginal art, please check that it is an authentic piece made by Aboriginal people. Often art & products which are tagged "Aboriginal-style" have been mass-produced or Aboriginal people did not consent to their symbols and patterns being used.
As a rule, ensure there is a Certificate of Authenticity to establish the origin of a work. Ask if the item made in Australia or If there is a royalty payment to the artist from this sale? Always check the label.
