Did you know that the first European to sight Australia was Dutch explorer Willem Janszoon in 1606 or that Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith made his trans-Atlantic flight in a Dutch Fokker alongside a Dutch co-pilot, Evert van Dijk? Australia and the Netherlands have a shared history stretching back more than four hundred years, cemented by the Uiver landing in Albury in 1934. This exhibition showcases Albury and Australia’s Dutch connections, with a focus on the Uiver story which, in part, led to the establishment of trade and migration agreements between the two countries.
