Australia
Free Event
Visual Arts

An exhibition examining Ludwig Leichhardt’s epic journey from Queensland through the gulf country and Kakadu to Port Essington in 1845. Using hand–coloured etchings, original journal entries and artefacts collected along Leichhardt’s original path, artist Simon Normand illuminates the disparity between the facts of the journey and what was ultimately reported. 

 

Presented by Northern Territory Library
