One of the rarest carved double didgeridoos we have seen to date was snapped up by our Norwegian friend Eivind (before we even had a chance to put it on the web!!) and will proudly be displayed in the Kakadu store in Norway.
Eivind is no stranger to unique pieces and has been collecting didgeridoos for a while having also purchased our longest didgeridoo ever at 3.1 metres on his last visit to Australia 18 months ago.
Check him out with the latest addition to his collection!
Many thanks Eivind!
A couple of years ago while visiting Australia from Iran, Pooria Shafieitabar entered our store and was fascinated by the didgeridoo and decided he simply just has to have one.
He promised he would take the didgeridoo back to Iran, learn how to play and maybe one day send us some footage of him and his friends jamming Iranian style.
We love the didgeridoo being played in unusual, unseen settings. Add the backdrop of the Iranian desert and we have exactly that.
Video below !! Thanks for the footage Pooria. Much appreciated.
The 3.1 metre Heartland Didgeridoo, the longest didgeridoo we have ever had in the store, has found a new home far far away in Egersund Norway and is now proudly displayed there in the Kakadu store. It has already created a lot of interest with a local newspaper already running a feature on it.
Our Norwegian friend Eivind who visits Australia every year and who already has quite an impressive collection of didgeridoos from Spirit Gallery could not resist this monster didge when he came face to face with it in the gallery. Check out Eivind with his new toy and its final resting place in Norway.
Thanks also to Sandy and Lee Harden, our American friends who purchased the other favourite Spirit Gallery piece of 2013 – the dot painted bench. This bench was painted by 10 individual artists from the Keringke Art Centre in the remote community of Santa Teresa in the central Australian desert. Each artist painted a different piece and once assembled we had one of the most remarkable pieces of Aboriginal Art we have seen. Check it out!
Late last year Spirit Pharmaceuticals contacted us to help them with their ambitious plan to use 72 didgeridoos as a screen/partition wall as part of their refurbishments at their offices in the Sydney CBD.
After some consultation between Spirit Gallery and the designers we were able to come up with the final concept. The renovations have now been completed, as has the didgeridoo screen wall.
72 colourful full length didgeridoos were used and are now a permanent feature of their main office. Being didgeridoo addicts here at Spirit Gallery this was an awesome project to be involved with.
Many thanks to Spirit Pharmaceuticals and their CEO Gary Waters for giving us this opportunity and trusting us with the job, and of course for the purchase of 72 didgeridoos!

After hours didgeridoo jam at Spirit Gallery. It’s not all about business here. We genuinely love the didgeridoo.
Hence these impromptu last minute didgeridoo gatherings, that are usually not recorded.
Throw in a bottle or two of red wine, courtesy of Liam (wearing the sunglasses indoors at 9pm) and things start to get noisy!
We were lucky enough to have our friend from up North Scott Estrich recently visit us.
Scott regularly incorporates the didgeridoo into his staff team builiding, corporate and eucational events and courses - often using instruments sourced from Spirit Gallery.
Scott has been playing and teaching the didgeridoo for almost 10 years, and has entertained groups and public audiences in concerts and festivals across Australia and Europe. He has worked and trained with didjeridu masters Djalu Gurriwiwi,Milkay Mununggurr and Darryl Dikarrna
Scott is available for almost any didgeridoo event whether it be lessons, workshops, weddings or corporate events and more, If you need anything didgeridoo and you are near the Sunshine Coast then Scott is your man!

Spirit Gallery is not only the local hub in Sydney for didgeridoo players but we have players from all around Australia and the world who buy online or come and visit the store.
Introducing Dino from Switzerland!
Dino was one of our first online customers back in January 2012, purchasing a beautiful IDIDJ yidaki. Over the months while staying in Queensland he improved his playing skills and finally came to visit us in person a couple of times before heading back to Switzerland after his Australian adventure.
Before leaving he added a rare Full Burton to his collection. One of the nicest didges we have ever had. A beautiful combination of a classic traditional didge with an amazingly crafted refined modern counterpart.
Spirit Gallery ships Australia wide and to every country in the world. International shipping to most countries is $80AUD for one didgeridoo. $120 for two didgeridoos. That’s the best didge shipping rates around- by far!!
