Dame Mary Gilmore - Dreaming of Newer Note

7 August till 15 November, 2015

Experience Dame Mary Gilmore in her own words.

2015 marks Dame Mary Gilmore's 150th birthday, and to celebrate, historian Maree Brassil and The Museum of the Riverina have curated a collection of the Dame's reflections on life in and around the Riverina.

Read her musings on local early settlement, wildlife, bushrangers, Aboriginal land and fishery management and more, from the pen of the Riverina's most distinguished writer.
