Drawn from the National Library of Australia’s major 2018–19 international exhibition, comes this travelling, multimedia display.

When you visit the new Cook and the Pacific exhibition you'll follow James Cook’s three remarkable Pacific voyages, and explore this spectacular region through the eyes of the British voyagers and the First Nations peoples they met. 

The exhibition takes visitors on a journey to the Pacific 250 years ago, with destinations including Tahiti, New Zealand, the east coast of Australia and Hawaii. 

You'll experience images of maps, manuscripts, rare books, oil paintings and watercolours by voyage artists.
