River Song is a multi-disciplinary exhibition revealing some of the many changes wrought on the Cooks River from environmental, cultural and historical perspectives.

Rare archival material is on view alongside contemporary art, oral history and botanical installations.

Drop by Delmar Gallery and peel back the layers of the river’s history to discover the poetry and cultural memory along its banks.
