About the exhibition

This National Museum of Australia exhibition celebrates the bush, the outback, the coast and the people who live there. Featuring some of the most striking photographs from the Australian Geographic archive, it will transport your visitors to some of the most rugged and remote parts of the country where they will discover the remarkable stories of ordinary Australians.

This exhibition is delivered in a fast, flexible and affordable format and is unique in its latitude. It can be small scale (up to 20 images) to fit into a smaller gallery, foyer space or town hall. Alternatively it can be scaled up to include all 60 images with all the value-adds to make this show a major event in your display space. We designed this show to suit a variety of venues, audiences, needs and interests - you curate your own exhibition, selecting your images at the size that suits you and your audiences best.
