The year 2020 marks the 250th anniversary of HMB Endeavour’s voyage along the east coast of Australia. This journey changed the course of human history on this continent.

The anniversary is an opportunity to seek new ways of understanding and representing the past. It is also a chance to continue building stronger, more meaningful relationships with Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people.

The National Museum's anniversary activities are funded by the Australian Government.
