Discover the stories of pioneers who pushed beyond the boundaries to change the way we see the world.
Adventure is at the heart of being Australian. In this immersive exhibition we celebrate early trailblazers including Captain Cook, Bourke and Wills, Emily Creaghe and Bennelong; modern pioneers such as Mawson and Kingsford Smith; and contemporary record-breakers like Dick Smith, Tim Jarvis, Andy Thomas and Jessica Watson.

Featuring over 360 objects, this exhibition brings some of Australia’s most incredible journeys to life, and puts you right in the centre. Whether they crossed oceans, tackled jungles, traversed mountains, braved the poles or went to space, be inspired by our nation’s greatest explorers who helped forge the intrepid Australian spirit.
"Educational, interactive, fun and with a whiff of danger: it’s a combination that makes the Australian Museum’s Trailblazers: Australia’s 50 greatest explorers an ideal outing."
- Stephen Romei, The Australian
