The rare ‘Voyage of Discovery in Southern Lands' publication will feature in The Art of Science: Baudin’s Voyagers 1800–1804 exhibition, opening at the Museum in 2018. It will also be available for future generations to study and enjoy.

Commissioned by Napoleon, 'Voyage of Discovery in Southern Lands’ records early exploration and mapping of Australia’s uncharted coastlines, encounters with Indigenous peoples and colonists, natural history specimens and animals.
