Take a journey through our galleries through three unique NAIDOC tours.

Join us as we Get Up, Stand Up and Show Up by learning and understanding more about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, culture and history throughout the Museum. 

Get Up! tour

The Get Up tour provides a unique experience in welcoming you into an insightful introduction of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history, as we take you on a journey though the city room, the Ngalang Koort Boodja Wirn Welcome Hub through to the continuation of the Ngalang Koort Boodja Wirn Gallery, ending our time together in the yarning circle for a small debrief.

Stand Up! tour

The Stand Up tour is for those who have some prior knowledge about Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander culture and history. Let us take you on a journey through the Changes gallery, Reflections and down to Ngalang Koort Boodja Wirn. Delve into in-depth narratives around historical implications of European colonisation while also learning about the incredible achievements Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people have done to benefit their community. This tour will finish in the yarning circle for a debrief.

Show Up! tour

The Show Up tour is for those with prior knowledge around Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander history and culture applying that deeper understanding of contemporary  issues affecting Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander communities today. Participants will be encouraged to interact while on this tour sparking healthy conversations and discussion around current issues to work toward changing the Australian cultural narrative.

Ryhia Dank, a young Gudanji/Wakaja artist from the Northern Territory is the winner of the prestigious National NAIDOC poster competition for 2022 with her entry, Stronger.

“I created this piece after reading this year’s National NAIDOC Week theme – Get Up! Stand Up! Show Up! I knew straight away I wanted to do a graphic piece centred around our flags with text highlighting what we have been through and are still fighting for” said Ryhia. “I feel that this piece being black and white allows us to focus on the details and messages in the artwork”
