I've Been Working on the Railway

I’ve Been Working on the Railway is on display as part of National Reconciliation Week until 4 June.

Through the 1950s, 60s and 70s, there were large scale developments of rail infrastructure across Australia. 


In the hot and dusty environments of the inland north, it was a common scene to find Torres Strait Islanders, Australian South Sea Islanders and Aboriginal people working long and hard in the hot sun.

In this exhibition we explore the little known railway stories of these people and their important contribution to the development of rail across Australia.
