VERA HATTON GALLERY
This exhibition explores the Navigators who have shaped our world and the technology that enabled them to make it safely back again - mostly! There were spectacular ship-wrecks and events that made these some of the bravest or foolhardy men of their time. Perhaps William Bligh's ability to navigate a small open boat 7,000 kilometers to safety in Java with his men after the mutiny was shaped by his experiences sailing with Captain Cook, these stories and more
Come on a journey through time as we explore the people, the technology and the events over 4 centuries and see how exploration of space still utilises some of the same concepts.
The exhibition uses graphics, and objects from the museum's Halloran Collection.

THE OVERWINTERING PROJECT Mapping Sanctuary
MARCH - JUNE 2020
A unique art project, this print exhibition unites over 150 artists around Australia and New Zealand to raise awareness for our most endangered group of birds, migratory shorebirds, and their habitat. (www.theoverwinteringproject.com)
Of particular importance to us in Jervis Bay, the East-Asian Australasian Flyway, is the migratory path that sea-birds navigate each year from the northern hemisphere from as far as Alaska, via Lake Woollomboola in the Shoalhaven to locations further south to nest. Locations such as these are important sites on their journey.
