Eucalyptusdom examines Australia's changing attitudes to our native gum trees — from early 19th century foresting to how we're thinking about environmental issues today. The immersive exhibition includes objects from artists, scientists, architects, designers, filmmakers, writers and performers, all exploring our relationship with eucalypts.

Its title comes from a 1930s text by one of our early conservationists, Edward F Swain. And conservation underpins the exhibition's supporting events program, too, which features stories from collaborating artists such as Dean Cross and Luna Mrozik Gawler, writer Julie Gough and film director Vera Hong.
