National Museum of Australia


The 30 metre high loop near the entrance to the National Museum of Australia is the most visible part of the 'Uluru Line', which begins with the covered walkway at the entrance and (physically) ends in a huge red concrete wave up past the Australian Institute of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Studies (AIATSIS) building. Conceptually, the line continues on in a north-west direction to Uluru (formerly known as Ayers Rock).

There's currently an exhibition entitled Not Just Ned: A true history of the Irish in Australia at the museum. It opened last week, and runs until the end of July. Admission: adults $10 / children $5 / concession $8 / Family $22.
