Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route

Planning a trip to Canberra in the holidays? If so, from now until the 26th January, you have the chance to witness a fabulous exhibition at the the National Museum of Australia, Yiwarra Kuju: The Canning Stock Route. This groundbreaking exhibition reveals the richness of desert life today. 

The exhibition tells the story of the Canning Stock Route’s impact on Aboriginal people, and the importance of the Country that surrounds it, through the works of senior and emerging artists and the stories of traditional custodians.
