Horse Power -- Light Horse in Palestine - to Beersheba and  Beyond - A century ago young Light Horsemen from the New England region found themselves on the other side of the world fighting their way from Egypt to Lebanon. The historic Battle of Beersheba in October 1917 is one of the most famous encounters in this campaign which pushed men and their horses to their limits. Horse Power provides us with an opportunity to look at the day-to-day life of these soldiers through their own images and words. Sometimes the glorious moment hides from us the larger story. Presented in partnership with the University of New England. Curated by William Oates, University Archivist. An official event of the Centenary of Beersheba.

Of the Land - from the Sea to the Desert (Judy Wilford) - As we journey through the land one remembers not just its specific landscapes but the elements within, the marks left by nature and man and the habitats of its wildlife. Share Northern Tablelands artist Judy Wilford's perceptions of the places she has lived, visited and journeyed through - from the Sea to the Desert.
