Miss Australia exhibition

If any of you visit Canberra you should make time to visit the National Museum of Australia, entry is free and they have a lovely girly exhibition currently that traces the history of the Miss Australia Quest from humble beginnings in 1907, through to its final year in 2000. Titleholders, volunteers, fundraisers and sponsors are all featured. Myself being particularly interested in textiles appreciated the hand embroidery both in the simple apron and in the gown worn by a Titleholder. Both items feature some of our gorgeous native flower.
