Eora: Mapping Aboriginal Sydney 1770–1850

Eora presents the Aboriginal past of early Sydney and surrounds. It chronicles the clans and families of the region and their connections to the land, each other and the English colonists. Through rarely seen maps, artworks, manuscripts and relics, drawn from collections in Australia and overseas, the exhibition reveals the distinctive saltwater culture of the Eora and the cross-cultural interactions that have formed our shared history.
