Great Southern Land tells the story of the Australian continent as ancient and powerful – a land which is interconnected, life-giving and always changing.


Students will consider their own connection to our ancient great southern land, through an experience of its power, rhythms and diversity. They will be asked to reflect on the Australian continent’s capacity for transformation and regeneration, also in response to the impact of human activity.


Students will explore our new Great Southern Land interactive gallery, which tells the story of the Australian continent across four chapters – power, connection, life and change. Within each chapter, students will be invited to consider their own relationship to place, its past and its future.
