One of the primary activities of the Whitlam Institute's outreach program is the presentation of high quality touring exhibitions that deal with Australia's political, cultural and social history. We take great pride in collaborating with major cultural institutions such as the National Archives of Australia, the Australian Museum, the Museum of Australian Democracy and the National Museum of Australia to bring these exhibitions to the heart of western Sydney.

Our exhibitions are often presented in the Margaret Whitlam Galleries, within the Female Orphan School building. Given Mrs Whitlam's well-known passion for Australia's cultural life, it is fitting that this space was named in her honour. We have also partnered with Riverside Theatres in central Parramatta as a venue for our touring exhibitions.

Information on our current and upcoming exhibitions can be found on this page. To find out more about exhibitions previously presented by the Whitlam Institute, visit the Past Exhibitions page.
