This exhibition by the State Library, in partnership with the Minderoo Foundation considers the legacy of John Forrest’s 1874 trek in shaping Western and South Australian exploration history.

State Library staff travelled through Western Australia and talked to Yamaji, Martu, Yarnagu and Anangu peoples about explorers walking through Country. From Another View considers those voices and aims to contextualise Aboriginal peoples' understanding of Country with those of the explorers.

The exhibitions span three sites: The State Library (7 May–19 July 2019), Gallery Central, North Metro TAFE (30 May–22 June 2019) and Museum of Geraldton (1–26 July 2019). Gallery Central and the Museum of Geraldton will host the creative responses to exploration and living on Country, and include Queensland artist Bill Gannon and Aboriginal Creative Fellows from Yamaji Country, Western Desert and Ngaanyatjarra Lands.
