The State Library of South Australia
Situated on one of Adelaide's wide boulevards, North Terrace, Adelaide's State Library is currently holding the National Treasures exhibition, a free travelling exhibition from Australia's National, State and Territory Libraries that tells a rich and remarkable story about our history, our nation, our treasures and our libraries.
It brings together, for the first time, more than 170 extraordinary items that have shaped our nation. One can see iconic items such as Ned Kelly's helmet, James Cook's Endeavour Journal, and a complete convict uniform. This landmark exhibition includes South Australian treasures of national significance from our own library collections.
And; the sun is still shining brightly in Adelaide, it's 26°C. March in Adelaide. No worries.
