Welcome to the Lee Point Art Exhibition
“What you like about Lee Point”
This exhibition runs 7 May to 6 June at Casuarina Library – View prize winners and award ceremony
Lee Point peninsular contains most of the habitats found in the Top End, and its natural beauty and rich biodiversity makes Darwin a special place. This area is enjoyed by families, naturalists, mountain bike riders, birdwatchers, fishermen, campers and bushwalkers.
Our aim for this exhibition is to encourage children and families to better understand, enjoy and appreciate what this wonderful peninsular has to offer.
The exhibition shows (172) visual artworks on “What you like about Lee Point” and was created by (168) young people aged under 19 years living in the Territory. Friends of Lee Point in conjunction with Planning Action Network organized this exhibition in a time when the natural beauty and biodiversity of Lee Point is under threat.

- City of Darwin – for providing the venue and display boards
