Pass the Salt

Pass the Salt

Pass the Salt explores places, examines objects and tells people's stories about salinity in the Wagga Wagga region, New South Wales. (2006)

The project is a collaboration between the National Museum of Australia, the Murray-Darling Basin Commission and the Museum of the Riverina. It is part of a National Museum of Australia initiative exploring how local communities respond to large-scale environmental change.

As a Museum project, a primary emphasis of this online exhibition (produced in 2006) is on the objects created during interaction between people and land across the Wagga Wagga region. This approach enables cultural and historical perspectives to be a part of Australia's conversation about salinity and sustainability.

To find more about the stories of how salinity has affected people, places and objects in the Wagga Wagga region, view Salinity and Wagga Wagga.
