The 40th Anniversary of Cyclone Tracy is an opportunity to reflect on the Northern Territory’s resilience and community spirit during a time of natural disaster, and to show how far Darwin has come since the Cyclone.

The Museum & Art Gallery of the Northern Territory (MAGNT) required an update to their existing Cyclone Tracy Exhibition, to incorporate the latest technology into the museum, and also to commemorate the 40th Anniversary of the cyclone’s tragic path to hit Darwin on Christmas Day, 1974.

Rutledge AV was commissioned to roll out an interactive digital display system and create the content for this milestone exhibition with a deadline of six weeks from commencement. This project highlights Rutledge’s growing expertise in digital content creation and information management, particularly in interactive digital content for exhibition venues.


The scope of works included two specific technology deliverables which would need to be custom designed and delivered to suit a museum environment.

This included:

  • A 47-inch interactive touchscreen that would be wall mounted
  • A 55-inch custom-made interactive table/touchscreen.


In 2015, Rutledge AV was shortlisted as an Audio Visual Industry Awards (AVIA) finalist for Cyclone Tracy.
