National Museum of Australia: Exploring the World at Port Macquarie

This is a fascinating exhibit from the National Museum of Australia which provides a look into the history, geography, culture, and the importance of astronomy to Port Macquarie in New South Wales. The three sections of the exhibit are filled with individual pictures, primary sources, and information about the resources. One section explores the Hastings River that flows into the ocean at Port Macquarie. See photographs from the early 20th century that document the culture of the indigenous people living in the area, the Birpai. There are also some short videos in each section.
