We are proud of the Indigenous records in our collection so we’ve arranged free guided tours during Reconciliation Week to point out some of those on display.
You can hear the story of the Larrakia petition to the Queen that was torn in a scuffle when Indigenous people tried to present it to Princess Margaret during her visit to Darwin in 1972. You’ll also see a copy of the 1967 Referendum and read letters protesting against the arrest of Albert Namatjira
