To coincide with the new theme of Australian 18th century artwork in the Images of Nature Gallery, our Special Collections Librarian Lisa Di Tommaso and Aboriginal Australian artist Daniel Boyd will be taking part in a Nature Live event on Tuesday 7th February.





The Museum holds in its collections fascinating drawings of the Australian landscape and the people of the Eora Nation, seen through the eyes of British settlers. It gives a rare insight into the establishment of the first British penal colony in Port Jackson, from 1788 onwards, and the flora, fauna and people they encountered.

Come and join them both discussing their work, learn about this part of Australian history and a chance to see some of these fascinating paintings.



This event is free and suitable for adults.


The talk begins at 14.30 in the Attenborough Studio in the Darwin Centre.
