Witness the history, spirituality and diversity of the world’s oldest living cultures in the First Australians galleries. Located on the ground floor, the galleries house two contemporary exhibitions, Garrigarrang: Sea Country and Bayala Nura: Yarning Country.
The galleries showcase a selection of the Museum's 40,000-piece collection of Indigenous Australian tools, artworks, adornments and other cultural materials acquired from early European settlement to today. Combined with audio-visual storytelling and personal narratives, the galleries aim to capture the diversity of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander art and culture from the Dreaming to the present day.
