The National Trust of Australia (NSW) is proud to present a new exhibition at Old Government House, entitled AT HOME: Modern Australian Design.

Curated by David Clark, design expert and former Editor in Chief of Vogue Living, AT HOME celebrates what makes Australian design so unique.

The clever placement of objects 200 years apart made from the same materials, or on a similar theme, or even as a sharp contrast, opens up our collections in entirely new ways.
