ABC online reports that the seven artworks have now been recoved.

Quoted from the report:

Assistant Police Commissioner Graeme Kelly says all seven works were recovered just before midday.

A Northern Territory Government spokesman says the paintings were found hidden amongst bushes less than 500 metres from where they were stolen.

Museum director Anna Malgorzewicz told a media conference some of the works have been soiled but can be restored.

"As one can expect, they've been stressed, they're slightly soiled but they are in very good condition," she said.

"They are [easy to clean up], the works have already been returned to the museum and gallery and they're currently in our conservation laboratory where are conservators are condition reporting them."
