A winding road of discovery inspired by the Murchison River, this exhibition offers surprises and fascinating artefacts around every bend of the snaking gallery.

The exhibition consists of two major sections: natural history and social history.

In natural history, see fossils that reveal the Mid West’s prehistoric past and discover its unique native flora and fauna.

In social history explore the rich culture of the local Yamaji people, tales of European exploration and settlers of more recent times - all of whom have battled this challenging environment.
