In 1818 John Oxley embarked on an expedition from Bathurst, following the Macquarie and the Hastings River to become known as Port Macquarie. 200 Years On is a photographic exhibition that captures a cross-section of people that Ronnie Grammatica encounters as he retraces that journey. The exhibition is a way to highlight the diversity and for the community to reflect on the heritage, history and local stories of people from across the region. These portraits emphasise the importance and contributions each individual has made to our rapidly-changing society. The photographs have the option of an interactive audio guide tour, so viewers can visually follow the story and hear the individual stories of the people captured.
