The Rotary Club of Beaumaris, in conjunction with the Bayside Council and the Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel, are proud to announce exhibitions of indigenous art from the Kakadu region commencing in May 2017 at the Bayside Council Artrium and with subsequent exhibitions held at the Bayside libraries (see below for dates).
This is a unique opportunity to see and buy guaranteed, genuine Kakadu Indigenous Art in Melbourne.

The Mercure Kakadu Crocodile Hotel’s, recent success in the 2016 Brolga Northern Territory Tourism Awards which were announced in November in Darwin follows an extensive upgrading program, which has included distinctive Indigenous aspects, such as the expansion of the hotel’s Ochre Art Gallery and the appointment of an Indigenous Artist in Residence to encourage greater understanding of local culture.
The Croc has developed strong relationships with several local artists such as Timothy Djandjomer, Selone Djandjomerr and Thompson Nganjmirra.
A proportion of the proceeds from the sale of the art will be donated by Beaumaris Rotary to the Sandringham Hospital, a national Rotary project to eradicate Trachoma and the Melbourne Indigenous Transition School.
