Sea Stories

The people of the Tweed have a deep connection to the ocean. The sea has always held cultural meaning, mystery, adventure, danger and fun in the curl of its waves and the sparkle of its depths.

The sea sustained the first people, it brought Europeans, carried and wrecked ships, and continues to provide a rich maritime culture in the Tweed.

This 2019/20 exhibition, displayed at Tweed Regional Museum Murwillumbah, told a wide variety of stories about human relationships with the ocean, through themes as varied as discovery, survival, adventure and fun!
