Children from Cooktown State School grow up surrounded by stories about Cook’s time at Waalumbaal Birri. In 2019, students from years 3 to 5 created a series of artworks that show how they see the events that took place there.
All the works were acquired by the National Museum. Some are on show in the exhibition.
