Cook and the Pacific

Currently, the national library of Australia has an exhibition on exploring the three voyages that Captain Cook took to the Pacific between 1768 and 1780. During the voyages, he explored the Society Islands, New Zealand, Australia, Hawaii, and North American. Nothing was the same after.

All shook up

While temperatures are rising in Canberra, this exhibition at the Canberra Museum and Gallery is keeping things cool, with falling snow. Although sadly, the snow is only falling in Sally Hopman's collection of over 500 snow domes, and not in the museum itself!
