The Northern Territory’s unique and colourful history, told through the lives of Territorians.

Today’s Northern Territory was built through the efforts and achievements of pioneering families whose descendants continue to make remarkable contributions to the social and economic development of the Northern Territory.These families have many stories that reflect the hardships and challenges of the old Territory and it is important they are recorded and preserved for future Territorians.

In this exhibition, the journeys of six Territorians and their families are told bringing their wonderful past back to life.
