A Legacy Revived

Established as one of the world's most lucrative art prizes, the Hadley's Art Prize boasts an annual award of $100,000, honoring the best portrayal of the Australian landscape. Dating back to the 1800s, Hadley's Orient Hotel's affinity for art has culminated in a contemporary celebration of excellence in landscape art, reminiscent of early landlord Howard Hadley's triumph in 1895.
