From the Becarevic Collection: Recollections of Exploration and Voyage
Recollections of Exploration and Voyage
OPEN DAILY 7 May – 24 June
Travellers’ narratives never cease to ignite the imagination. Early explorers – those filling in the blank spaces on the map – were the rock stars and celebrities of their time. Sea voyages were dangerous and successful expeditions guaranteed a place in society and history books.
Drawn from our Becarevic Collection and curated by UOW Archives, this exhibition illustrates the evolution of the traveller and the documentation of their journeys and experiences.
