Desert Honeymoon: Bertha Strehlow and the Petermann Ranges Expedition

This fine and evoca­tive exhi­bi­tion on Bertha Strehlow told the sto­ry of her hon­ey­moon jour­ney of 1936.

The exhi­bi­tion was a col­lab­o­ra­tion with the Strehlow Research Cen­tre and the Old Luther­an Church His­to­ry Cen­tre, Alice Springs. On dis­play were orig­i­nal copies of pho­tographs and let­ters along with the rich pan­els telling the sto­ry of this very mov­ing hon­ey­moon journey.

Desert Hon­ey­moon: Bertha Strehlow and the Peter­mann Ranges Expe­di­tion was on dis­play from 8 March-19 April 2015.
