CUL­TURE VUL­TURE

Paradise - - Traveller -

The Na­tional Mu­seum of Aus­tralia (nma.gov.au) fea­tures every­thing from cricket to agri­cul­tural his­tory, the demise of the Tas­ma­nian tiger to the lat­est in Aus­tralian sci­en­tific re­search. The hands-on ex­hibits ap­peal to kids.

The Na­tional Por­trait Gallery (por­trait.gov.au, right) has fa­mil­iar faces in paint­ing and sculp­ture, in­clud­ing great sport­ing fig­ures such as Don Brad­man and Cathy Free­man, a wrin­kled Ru­pert Mur­doch and Rus­sell Crowe.

For a light-hearted ex­plo­ration of Aus­tralian cul­ture, head to the Na­tional Film and Sound Ar­chive (nfsa.gov.au) and lis­ten to ver­sions of Waltz­ing Matilda, find out about no­to­ri­ous bushranger Ned Kelly, and ogle cos­tumes and mem­o­ra­bilia from iconic Aus­tralian movies.
