The tiny settlement of Bentley, on the Kyogle to Lismore Road, has become recognised throughout Australia for its annual art competition. Held in July at the Bently Hall, the Bentley Art Prize offers a $1000.00 fist prize for its open section and a $1000.00 acquisition prize. Hundreds of artists from New South Wales and Queensland enter and the Aboriginal art section is earning a stron reputation. Bentley was named after Great Bentley in England, the birthplace of Robert Barrington Dawson, who built Bentley Homestead in the late 1870’s.

Where Are Australia's Best Beaches?

Australia's Best Beaches

Australia has miles and miles of shoreline but which beaches are really great? Ultimately it depends on what you're looking for in a beach. Pristine wilderness without a single footprint in sight, the sparkle of cosmopolitan high rise on the waters edge, the adrenalin pumping roar of a powerful surf beach, or quite simply the perfect white squeaky sand that squelches between your toes.
