Islands curator's tour

islands

This event is now in the past.

Islands explores the secrets, stories and hidden histories of Queensland’s islands and in doing so, reshapes our knowledge of these close but faraway places. From Peel Island’s lazaret and St Helena Island’s penal settlement to the story of Eliza Fraser and the development of tourism on Lindeman Island, Islands brings to life some of the lesser known stories of our state’s island life. The exhibition draws on State Library’s rich collections to explore the stories of Queensland islands through photographs, drawings, maps, objects and more.

The curator's tour will offer insights and behind-the-scenes information not normally accessible to the public. Come along and hear the real secrets behind this rich exhibition.

Free curator's tours of Islands: Hidden Histories from Queensland Islands occurs on the second and fourth Wednesday of every month at 11am, until 23 January.
