Before Tracy Exhibition

Before Tracy ExhibitionMonday 24 November – Sunday 25 January
Northern Territory Library, Parliament House

Darwin in 1974 was free and easy with good-humoured friendly locals living relaxed lifestyles. The 'big country town' was colourful with elevated homes, lush tropical gardens of palms, frangipani, bougainvillea and an abundance of wildlife.

This exhibition draws on the collections of the Northern Territory Library to create an upbeat picture of Darwin before the destruction wreaked by Cyclone Tracy.
Free event, open to the public
