The inspiring history of Palm Island is celebrated in a fascinating showcase of images, memorabilia and digital stories. Palm Island and Our People acknowledges the centenary of the first placement of people to the island as an Aboriginal Reserve and explores the history of this tropical paradise. 

The showcase provides an opportunity to commemorate the past 100 years and to celebrate a new future for the Palm Island people, focussing on the themes past, present and future. 

At the launch, experience a performance by the Bwgcolman Dancers and a traditional smoking ceremony to celebrate Palm Island’s rich culture.
