This exhibition paid tribute to the eight extraordinary Australians chosen as the 2016 Australian of the Year finalists, including national winner David Morrison. The exhibition featured personal objects chosen by the finalists for their significance and ability to communicate something special about their lives and experiences.

The National Museum uses objects to tell stories, to connect with others and make us think. We asked the Australian of the Year recipients from each state and territory to choose an object of personal significance to go display. Each object tells us something about their lives, aspirations and experiences.
This exhibition has been on show at:
- National Museum of Australia, Canberra, 16 December 2015 to 11 February 2016
