Mitchell River National Park has impressive river scenery, serene rainforest gullies, rugged landscapes and some of Victoria's more unusual vegetation communities. From open forest to remote river gorges, the park is home to a vast array of indigenous flora and fauna, some at the furthermost extent of their range.

The park is an exciting destination for outdoor enthusiasts and boasts unspoilt natural beauty and remoteness. Canoeing or rafting provides the easiest access to much of the park. The river offers the canoeist short day trips or extended touring through tranquil pools and turbulent rapids down to the Gippsland Lakes. The best time canoeing is from July to December.

Coongulmerang: Events

We are made of star stuff


We are made of star stuff explores the cycle of evolution and extinction. Jennifer Hawkins asks the big questions: Where do we come from? Where do we go to?

Human population is growing at the rate of 200,000 each day. Other species are becoming extinct at the rate of dozens per day. The laws of physics tell us that matter and energy are two forms of the same thing and that they are the raw material of everything in the universe. That raw material doesn't go away, it just changes form. That foundation of physics seems to Hawkins, to link evolution and extinction, to complete the circle, and to address the big questions. As the stuff of stars we are all connected - to each other, to the earth, to the universe. This body of work explores the cycle of that connection.

This exhibition is New South Wales artist Jennifer Hawkins first solo exhibition and has travelled from Latrobe Regional Gallery.

We Are Made of Star Stuff - Artist: Jennifer Hawkins


We are made of star stuff explores the cycle of evolution and extinction. Jennifer Hawkins asks the big questions: Where do we come from? Where do we go to?

Jennifer Hawkins graduated from Canberra School of Art in 1981, discovering early on that the idea always comes first. She then uses the materials and processes that serve the idea.

Human population is growing at the rate of 200,000 each day. Other species are becoming extinct at the rate of dozens per day. The laws of physics tell us that matter and energy are two forms of the same thing and that they are the raw material of everything in the universe.

That raw material doesn't go away, it just changes form. That foundation of physics seems to Hawkins, to link evolution and extinction, to complete the circle, and to address the big questions. As the stuff of stars we are all connected - to each other, to the earth, to the universe. This body of work explores the cycle of that connection.

Officially opening Thursday 1 September 5:30pm. Everyone is welcome and entry is free.
