Last weekend I visited the Lighthouse Arts exhibition Whale Tales at Nobbys Lighthouse. The exhibition is a wonderful blend of poems, a story and artwork, all inspired by whales. The artists involved are:
The poems interspersed between the artworks adding layers of meaning are by:

with a story by Bronwyn Frost and Awakabal words by Shane Frost.
The exhibition is well worth a visit but with reservations for older art lovers. It is a round trip walk to the lighthouse and back of an hour from the closest carpark, including a steep incline. And when I visited last weekend there were no toilets on site and no food and drinks available to buy. So I recommend taking a thermos and picnic lunch because there are places to sit and enjoy the view. I was heartened to see books and artwork by local Hunter writers and artists for sale in the shop and I’m looking forward to the next exhibition. Whale Tales runs until 18th September.
