William Strutt was the first great exponent of history painting to work in Australia. His spectacular work depicting the brutal and beautiful Australian landscape, explorers and bushrangers is iconic, and informs the way we envisage colonial life in the mid-nineteenth century. Heroes and Villains brings together Strutt’s oils, watercolours, sketches and prints from the extensive collections at the National Library with dramatic works from several major Australian collections.
10 am–5 pm
Every Sunday is the two for one tapas special from 3pm til 6pm at Parlour Wine Room.
The Treasures Gallery exhibits the Library’s most celebrated items. They illustrate some of the nation’s greatest stories, from Cook and Bligh’s epic voyages to the death of Burke and Wills in central Australia and the Mabo land rights case. Recently refreshed, the gallery features one of the earliest drawings of the polar bear, the first European depiction of an Australian bird, a book of verse inscribed by Henry Lawson to his wife and a bookcase carved by the young Dorothea Mackellar. It also displays the recently listed Memory of the World Gallipoli Letter written by Keith Murdoch in 1915.
10 am–5 pm.

It’s official. Winter is here! If you hadn’t already reached for the gloves and scarf this year, there will be plenty of opportunities ahead of you as we head into the cooler months. Sure, winter isn’t as much fun as summer, but every cloud has a silver lining... especially those filled with snow.
