The history of Australia comes to life in the stories of individual Australians and their possessions. From a slouch hat to a dress hand-sewn during the Depression, from Captain Cook's globe to Mabo's map, from Henry Lawson's pen to Cathy Freeman's running suit, each of these objects captures something of what has shaped us as a nation, a people, a continent.
