Who Was Hettie Wenz?

Thu 7 March at 6:30 pm


Join in for dinner and a talk with Suzanne Bravery from Make Museums Matter.

Suzanne is a heritage expert and she’s in town to check out the Paul & Hettie Wenz Collection. The Collection reveals secrets about this intriguing couple’s lives at Nanima Station on the Galari-Lachlan River in the early twentieth century, and maps their travels through the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe in the Age of Empires, and their experience of the killing fields of northern France during WW1.

This talk is free and dinner and drinks can be ordered at the bar.
