About the exhibition

Did you know that the first European to sight Australia was Dutch explorer Willem Janszoon in 1606 or that Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith made his trans-Atlantic flight in a Dutch Fokker alongside a Dutch co-pilot, Evert van Dijk?

Australia and the Netherlands have a shared history stretching back more than four hundred years, cemented by the emergency landing, with the aid of local residents, of the Uiver aeroplane in Albury in 1934.

Australia’s Dutch Connections showcases the ties between the two countries, with a focus on the Uiver story which, in part, led to the establishment of trade and migration agreements between the two countries.
