Prison Art (4)

Street art in the recreation area by Darwin street artist Hafleg.

 

Gunn Point Prison Farm was opened by the Northern Territory Government in 1973 to manage overcrowding at Fannie Bay Gaol. In March of 1996 the facility was closed down due to high operating costs, high utilisation rates and low out of cell hours for inmates.

 

The buildings are still there, however the depredations of vandals, fires and cyclones have taken their toll.
