Bentley, NSW

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.
