Councillor Don Palmer Providing Local Leadership & Working for You

Our very own Museum won a category at the “Museums and Galleries National Conference Awards” last night for our “Gorgeous Gardens Exhibition”.

The award was for “level 2 exhibition (permanent) costing $20,000 – $150,000“.


Quoting our CEO Mr Peter Tsokas
“This is an outstanding effort as we were competing against 10 other Museums and Galleries from across Australia that were nominated as finalists.

Some of the others included the likes of the Newcastle Museum and the Museum and Art Gallery of the Northern Territory.

In fact, we were the only Museum and Gallery from South Australia to win a category which is a fantastic effort and something we should all be proud of!

A huge congratulations to  Elizabeth and her team – including all the volunteers – that researched, prepared and set-up the exhibition. Their passion and commitment has made all this possible.

Well done!!”
