Local’s Hour Wet Season Treasures Tour

Located in Parliament House on State Square in the heart of Darwin, the Northern Territory Library is the NT’s major public research library.

Providing all the usual library services, including access to books, magazines and newspapers, school education programs and events and exhibitions, the NT Library is also home to an extensive collection of Northern Territory historical and cultural material – and one of the library’s fundamental roles  is to share these treasures with Territorians. 

This February, you are invited to don the white gloves for a hands-on exploration of what lies within the special collections.

The Library Treasures Tour provides an up close presentation of some of the many treasures, including rare books, photographs and manuscripts. 

From the Cyclone Tracy evacuee list, to rare 19th century maps and old-school Neighbourhood Watch newsletters, the treasure tours will bring a wealth of NT historical documents to your fingertips. 

Tue 13 & 27 Feb | 10.30-11.30am | NT Library
