Surverying History: the Larrakia meet the NT Expedition

5:15pm Wednesday 10 February 2016
GoyderNorthern Territory Library, Parliament House

Heritage Coordinator at the Northern Territory Library, Dr Samantha Wells, will draw on the Library’s collection of photographs and original materials to tell the history of Goyder’s Camp and the work of the 1869 NT Surveying Expedition. This talk is timed to coincide with the opening of Goyder Park on Kitchener Drive – part of the Darwin Waterfront development. Intrinsic to her discussion is the understanding that Darwin – or Palmerston as it was then known – was already a well-known and occupied space. The way that local Larrakia people responded to, impacted on and interacted with the surveyors will be a feature of this fascinating depiction of our city’s colonial history.

Free event, and open to the public.
