The Australian Nation

Years 5–10

The Australian Nation is a Museum educator-led program where students investigate the theme of nationhood by interrogating objects and exploring themes and defining moments in Australia’s history.

Students have the opportunity to explore important aspects of Australia’s development as a nation, and discuss events and groups of people they deem key in shaping Australia’s identity.

Fight for Indigenous Rights

Years 9–12

Fight for Indigenous Rights is a Museum educator-led program where students investigate the struggle for Indigenous rights and freedoms in Australia by exploring themes of connection to country, inequality and the fight for recognition.

Students apply these themes to case studies such as the Freedom Rides, the Day of Mourning and the Stolen Generations.

Endeavour Voyage

Years 3–10

This Museum educator-led digital program explores the Endeavour voyage, focusing on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander experiences and the experiences of those travelling on the HMB Endeavour.

Students will use inquiry-based learning to investigate the different perspectives of James Cook's 1770 journey. Students will also consider the impacts of the journey on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities and how we should collectively remember the voyage into the future.

Virtual tours

Virtual tours of exhibition galleries may also be available on demand. We deliver our virtual excursions through the online platform, Zoom.
