Horizons: The Peopling of Australia since 1788

Horizons: The Peopling of Australia since 1788 traced incredible stories of human relocation.

It looked at how migration shaped the Australia we know today, and the role governments have played. It showed who these migrants are and were, where they came from, what they packed in their suitcases, and what hopes and expectations they held for their new life.

The Horizons gallery was open from March 2001 to October 2007.

The Horizons gallery has become Australian Journeys.

Australian Journeys explores the fascinating journeys of people and objects that connect Australia to the world. Australian Journeys was opened in January 2009 as part of the Museum's exciting program of museum development.
