Remarkable - Stories of Australians and their boats

Remarkable - Stories of Australians and their boats

Starts: Friday, 24 June 2022, 12:00 am
Ends: Sunday, 03 July 2022, 12:00 am
New Exhibition Explores Australians' love of Boats presently at The Old Kirk, Yamba Museum. Closes Thursday 30 June at 4.30pm. Australia's history is populated with maritime related stories. With over 1,000 rivers and a coast that stretches for more than 36,000 kilometres, it is no surprise that Australia abounds with stories of people who have lived and worked on the water. This exhibition presents some of those stories, exploring the remarkable connections between people and their boats. Remarkable, created by the Australian Maritime Museums Council (AMMC) and the Australian National Maritime Museum, provides an opportunity for regional audiences to hear national and local stories. From the 34 stories nominated by maritime museums and heritage institutions around Australia, 12 of the most compelling stories were selected to feature in the exhibition. Including local identities and boating stories etched into our Clarence River history. "After a period of drought, bushfire, Covid-19 and floods the chance for regional communities to enhance a national exhibition with their own content is a great opportunity for outreach and community development. It gives affected communities the chance to share their stories both locally and nationally", said Tanya Bush, Acting Director of the Australian National Maritime Museum. Woven into this exhibition are local heroes, including Kay Cottee, and boating stories of the Clarence River.
