About the exhibition

Curate your own exhibition with content that celebrates the bush, the outback, the coast and the people who live there.

Featuring photographs from the Australian Geographic archive, the content 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 unique in its latitude and has been specially designed to suit a variety of venues, audiences, needs and interests. It can be delivered as just 20 photographic images or less so as to fit into a smaller spaces in libraries, foyer spaces or a town hall. Alternatively it can be scaled up to 60 images to make this show a major event in your venue.

Exhibition cost varies according to the number of images you request. It is available anytime as images are printed, packed and provided to venues on order.
