Archibald Prize Special – Tweed Regional Gallery

The Archibald Prize is coming to the Tweed and it’s going to be special!

The Archibald Prize is Australia’s foremost portraiture prize and has been running annually since 1921. The Tweed Regional Gallery and Margaret Olley Art Centre is lucky enough to be the first cab off the rank on the exhibits regional tour. The beautiful gallery is a short and scenic 30 minute drive from Hastings Point. Make North Star your base and enjoy a 15% discount on all accommodation and sites using the discount code ARCHIBALD. Upon booking you will be issued with a unique code to receive discounted entry when you visit this prestigious and sometimes controversial Australian art prize. Vote for your favourite portrait in the ANZ People’s Choice award before voting closes on 21 February and see the work of budding artists aged 5–18 in the Young Archies on display in the Gallery Foyer.

This Archibald Prize special is available to all 2 night minimum bookings from Tuesday 26th January – Saturday 6th March 2021.  Visit the Tweed Regional Gallery website for more information on opening times and exhibit details here.

Why not make a weekend of it and enjoy a getaway at Hastings Point on the Tweed Coast.
