Community through outreach

Defining the Symbols of Australia is a travelling exhibition from the National Museum that explores our affinity to iconic Australian symbols such as Uluru, the national flag, wattle, vegemite and the Sydney Harbour Bridge. The exhibition is based on our 2009 show Symbols of Australia which also toured across the country.

The Museum will travel digital panels depicting each symbol. Venues will then look to their own collections to add objects and works of art that explore how these symbols relate to their local community. In this way the new exhibition will be a collaborative venture between the Museum and the regional venue.
