The Story of The Great Emu In The Sky

Australia has been occupied for over 65,000 years. First Nations Australians have an amazing relationship with the land and use storytelling to teach us about culture and history.

Listen to Aunty Clair Jackson tell the amazing story of the great emu in the sky when she speaks to the host of the That's Incredible podcast, Andrew Daddo. That's Incredible! is a podcast for parents and kids.

Can you find the Great Emu in the Sky on your visit to the museum? It can be viewed from two different levels!

Aunty Clair Jackson begins speaking at the 10.04 mark.
