New to our refurbished First Australians galleries is Bayala Nura: Yarning Country, a permanent exhibition celebrating the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures.
The exhibition features hundreds of objects from the Museum’s collections – many on public display for the first time.
Shields, spears and weavings complement a large bark canoe created using traditional techniques especially for the Museum’s collection.
The striking array of designs and technologies on display connects cultures to Country, sparking new conversations – the 'yarning' in the title – about embracing cultural diversity in contemporary Australia.
