This week FoNR committee members Sandal Hayes and Liz Gallie met at Ninney Rise with Kate Morschel and Rowena from the National Museum Australia.
They had a tour of the house and we provided oral history. Both Kate and Rowena were familiar with the FoNR website and Iain McClaman's 'The Reef a Passionate History' and expressed how valuable the website and material is as a resource.
They were impressed with Ninney Rise and very interested in the part the Ninney Rise story might play in a new dedicated exhibition at the museum on the Great Barrier Reef.
Do you recognise anyone?
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.
