Always on Country

Using sound and light installation, Always on Country reminds us that we wake up every day on unceded Aboriginal land and invites visitors to reflect on how brave actions in our daily lives can contribute to reconciliation. Leave your mark on the walls of this display by writing or drawing a message to inspire others to make a change or find out more about Aboriginal histories, cultures and achievements.
