Wiluna and Birriliburu Native Title area

The From Another View project team arrived in Wiluna on 23 May 2018 after an overnight stop in Meekatharra. The load on the ute still intact, the team set about unloading and setting up the pop-up exhibition at the old hospital near the Tjukurba Art Gallery.

The pop-up exhibition opened on 24 May with an afternoon barbecue. It was a relaxed affair with people from the Wiluna community attending throughout the afternoon.

The project team set up a Storylines session in the Tjukurba Art Gallery and helped people reconnect with old photographs of family.

From 26-30 May, State Library staff, and Bill Gannon and Rod Schlencker travelled from Wiluna via the Canning Stock Route to Windich Spring, Pierre Spring, the Weld Spring/Palatji and then via Glenayle Station to the Carnegie Homestead. The State Library recognise the right of Martu people to check images and content prior to posting online. Therefore, there will be a delay in posting information related to areas closer to the Canning Stock Route. Please check the Google Map for location details.
