Old New Land explored Australia’s diverse and unique plants, animals and environments and how people responded and adapted to the land over time.
Old New Land, originally Tangled Destinies, was on show at the National Museum of Australia from 11 March 2001 to 13 January 2020.
Australia’s unique environment and natural history will be explored in a new gallery, Great Southern Land, opening in 2021.
Old New Land looked at our changing knowledge of the land, the ways we reacted to the environment and different ways of living with the land.
