Throughout June, Natural Resources Alinytjara Wiluṟara (NR AW) and Natural Resources Adelaide and Mount Lofty Ranges (NR AMLR) staff collaboratively installed satellite exhibitions in the Barossa Valley, Victor Harbor and Ceduna.

The exhibitions form part of the ‘Adelaide meets the Bush’ strategy which promotes greater cross regional understanding and relationships. The photographs and interpretive information are tailored to suit each venue and provide visitors with a maximum opportunity to learn about the people of the AW Region and their country.

The Barossa Valley exhibition was held at Barossa Bushgardens Natural Resource Centre (NRC) and beneficially coincided with both the NRC Open Day and Reconciliation Week. Adjahdura Elder Quenten Agius welcomed the 300 guests to country and his talented grandson performed a traditional dance. The exhibition continues until the end of July.

Exhibitions were also installed at the SA Whale Centre in Victor Harbour and another at the Memorial Hall in Ceduna. In celebration of NAIDOC week artwork from Ceduna Arts and the Far West Coast Aboriginal Women’s Council were included in the Ceduna exhibit. NR AW and AMLR would like to thank all those who made the wonderful success of these exhibitions possible.
