In conjunction with the Australian National Maritime Museum and the Bligh Museum of Pacific Exploration have pleasure in being able to display the panels depicting the adventures of Sir Ernest Shackleton for a period of twelve weeks.
These panels depict the exploits of Sir Ernest Shackleton in his epic voyage across the Southern Ocean from Antarctica to South Georgia in an open row boat some 800 miles across intrepid ocean during the period from 1915 to 1917.
According to Sir Edmund Hillary "this attempt to rescue all of Shackleton' 28 men stranded in Antarctica is the greatest survival story of all times".
These panels have some relevance to grade 5 and 6 grade cirriculum.
