Don't Miss: Canning Stock Route exhibition

On now at the National Museum of Australia, and showing until January, this free exhibition is one not to be missed. I took my little guy along yesterday and neither of us wanted to leave! Here's a sneak peak at some of the amazing artworks in the exhibition - keep in mind, they are in huge scale... they take my breath away...
