This online exhibition has been developed from a National Library of Australia display, Country & Landscape, shown in the Visitor Centre of the National Library in 2006. The display was guest-curated by Professor Ken Taylor of the Humanities Research Centre, Australian National University, who wrote the text for the brochure accompanying the original display. Read the brochure to the original display .
Illustrations used on this website are only a minute example of the rich collection of colonial landscape images held by the National Library of Australia.
The revised text for this online version of the display (including the overview) was compiled by Martin Terry and Paul Cliff. Read the overview to this online exhibition.
