First World War treasures Cairns

White gloves experience

This event is now in the past.

Join us in Cairns for a hands-on look at some of State Library’s precious original First World War materials. In a unique opportunity to put on the white gloves, you can get up close and personal with a curated selection of treasures from SLQ, such as letters, diaries and photographs.

A State Library collection specialist will guide you through the story and significance of carefully selected First World War collection items. Morning tea is provided.

If you'd like to learn more there’s also a Caring for your First World War collections session from 1pm-4pm, in Cairns.

This event is part of Q ANZAC 100: Memories for a New Generation, proudly supported by the Queensland Government.
