  • The Big Canvas - painting Cockatoo Creek
    "At Cockatoo Creek in 1931, anthropologists from this Museum and the University of Adelaide met Warlpiri and Anmatyerre people for the first time.This painting commemorates that meeting."
  • Ngurunderi - An Aboriginal Dreaming
    "This exhibition describes the culture of the Ngarrindjeri people of the Lower Murray River and Coorong areas of South Australia. Their environment was rich with animals, plants and aquatic resources and the Ngarrindjeri groups were consequently less nomadic than Aborigines of the inland. A wide range of material culture items - wooden artefacts and basketry in particular - reflected this more sedentary lifestyle."
