This exhibition showcases the stories of 19 unique women from the mid-1800s to present day all of whom have connections to the magnificent riverscape of the Murray Darling Basin home to Australia’s three longest rivers, the Murray, the Darling and the Murrumbidgee.
From significant Aboriginal beginnings, paddle steamer trade routes, to a place, which has developed its own culture, the Murray Darling Basin is now a myriad of natural destinations like no other.
The Women of the River Country exhibition was developed by the volunteers and staff of the Mannum Dock Museum in South Australia.
This exhibition will be on display in the Wharf 7 Maritime Heritage Centre on the ground floor and in the Vaughan Evans Library.
