Our living land: Encountering an upside down world

Bond Store Galleries, Ground Level


This exhibition explores how Tasmania's natural environment has been used to create wealth, advance science and define the state. It also examines the way Europeans responded to the unfamiliar plants and animals they encountered when they first arrived in the new colony.

Discover how Tasmania's natural environment influenced the development of the colony and how some species vanished, others prospered and new ones arrived.
