While on a family trip to NSW, Friends of Ninney Rise (FoNR) secretary Sandal Hayes took the opportunity to visit Canberra where she met with Rowena McDonald, who is in charge of curating the new permanent Reef exhibition being planned for the National Museum.
While there, Sandal also caught up with Virginia Edlington who donated the collection of photos and miscellaneous personal effects of Alison Busst. (See the collection of photos here).
It is of great excitement to FoNR that Virginia generously donated another valuable contribution to our collection for heritage listed Ninney Rise.
Virginia is shown here holding the painting of Bedarra Island by John Busst complete with his signature style bamboo frame.
Even a small memory may fill in a gap in our knowledge of the events that culminated in the protection of the Great Barrier Reef and later the Wet Tropics rainforests.
