Get up close to some of Australia’s most iconic art – and one of our most famous icons – at the Tweed Regional Gallery’s showing of Sidney Nolan’s revered Ned Kelly Series, on loan from the National Gallery of Australia.

Nolan’s 1946-47 paintings of the infamous Victorian bushranger Ned Kelly depict the main events in his life, from early encounters with police in pursuit of Kelly and his gang to the shooting at Stringybark Creek and siege at Glenrowan, ending with the Melbourne trial where Kelly was sentenced to hang in 1880.

Music in the Caldera Concert Series – 19 to 21 March 

Think smooth sounds in original Art Deco venues and you’ve found an event in the Tweed that will make the heart sing!

The inaugural Music in the Caldera Concert Series features local and visiting artists paying tribute to Ella Fitzgerald and performing big band, swing, jazz and funk, while respected cellist Louise King brings her take on contemporary cello to evoke the spirit of the bush, didgeridoo, bird calls and the sounds of stars in the night sky.

The Concert is being held across stunningly restored venues in the Art Deco town of Murwillumbah, both at The Citadel, a century old Salvation Army music hall, and the glorious Regent Cinema, built in 1947 as a movie house and continuing its legacy today as a space for live and cinematic events.
