Albury and Australia's Dutch Connections

An exhibition showcasing Albury's Dutch connections with a focus on the Uiver story.

Did you know that the first European to sight Australia was Dutch explorer Willem Janszoon in 1606 or that Australian aviator Sir Charles Kingsford Smith made his trans-Atlantic flight in a Dutch Fokker alongside a Dutch co-pilot, Evert van Dijk?  

Australia and the Netherlands have a shared history stretching back more than four hundred years, cemented by the Uiver landing in Albury in 1934.

This exhibition showcases Albury and Australia’s Dutch connections, with a focus on the Uiver story which, in part, led to the establishment of trade and migration agreements between the two countries. Take a walk through the exhibition.
