From 6:00 AM Thursday 15 April 2021, restrictions for all of Queensland eased. Residents are encouraged to review specific information for the Galleries & Museums.
This exhibition is a celebration in pictures of the bush, the outback, the coast and the people who live there.
Featuring photographs from the Australian Geographic archive, be transported to some of the most rugged and remote parts of the country and discover the remarkable stories of ordinary Australians - their indomitable community spirit, their struggles, passions, livelihoods, skills and the changing times through which they have lived.
A travelling exhibition from the National Museum of Australia developed in collaboration with Australian Geographic.
The Editor in Chief of Australian Geographic, Chrissie Goldrick, will be the guest speaker on the night of the exhibition opening. Chrissie will present a special talk in celebration of the A Portrait of Australia exhibition. Join us for a lovely informative evening, which includes drinks and nibbles on the deck of the museum.
