The exhibition is the State Library’s contribution to the recognition of the 400th Anniversary of the European discovery of the west coast of Australia. Dirk Hartog landed in the Eendracht at Cape Inscription, Shark Bay on 25 October 1616. Many items from the State Library collection are so precious that the Library cannot put them on public display. However, with technology, we can bring these pieces to our audience both physically in the exhibition and online through the catalogue.
