The Wool Road was built in 1841 by graziers from the Monaro High Plains who needed a quicker way to get their wool to Sydney. The Yuin people of the South Coast assisted the European settlers to find the best route to the sea by showing them the traditional pathway. The Wool Road ended in a wharf close to where the Vincentia Shopping Centre now stands. Bullock drays were used to bring the wool down this precarious road to where ships would be waiting to take the cargo to Sydney and on to England.  Re-imagining The Wool Road emerges out of several years of research, and community consultation. This exhibition will feature video artworks,  large photographic images, paintings and sculpture inspired by landscape, history, language, and community stories of this shared history.
