Seven Sisters

Kungkarangalpa: Seven Sisters Songlines

Walk the songlines. Stop at sites along the way and learn from cultural custodians about country and survival in the desert. Songlines are the Indigenous way of holding and narrating history through story.

This epic Indigenous-led exhibition explores the significance of songlines and tracks the Seven Sisters Tjukurrpa (Dreaming) across the Western and Central deserts of Australia.

Walk it, talk it, sing it, dance it, paint it. Engage in the art centre hub. Experience the virtual reality of a rock art site through immersion in a state-of-the-art six-metre dome that maps the Seven Sisters’ journey.

Trace their passage in the night sky overhead or get a bird’s-eye view of their travels over spectacular desert country.
