About

In the 1860's and 1870's - long before the suburbs came, "selectors" chose blocks of land to build a home and a farm, and gradually a community.  Early maps and plans will help show how six pioneering families made Ginninderra home - before it was all taken from them.  The stories of these settler families are well illustrated with photographs, maps and plans. 

The exhibition will be opened by historian Dr Barbara Dawson, at 11 am on Sunday 14 April and will then continue every Sunday afternoon and Thursday morning.
