            Nature's Way is one of the most glorious tourist drives in Australia - indeed the world - heading from Darwin in the Northern Territory out east to Kakadu National Park, south to Nitmiluk National Park (formerly known as Katherine Gorge) then north back to Darwin via Litchfield N...ational Park. As well as the national parks, the route passes many lesser known but often almost equally sublime places. Louise showcases the journey with beautiful and dramatic photographs, the result of her phenomenal eye for composition and seeming endless patience to capture a scene at just the right moment. No shrinking violet, Louise heads out in all weathers and has captured the region in all its guises, from the still, parched dry season to the often violently stormy early wet season to the rich, exuberantly green late wet season. As well as landscapes, Louise gets to grips with showing us the rhythms and flows of the diverse flora and fauna to be seen along the route, with wonderfully shot images of many of the animals and plants that are part of this incredible landscape.

            Becoming Our Future: Global Indigenous Curatorial Practice reflects on international Indigenous methodologies in curatorial practice from the geographic spaces of Canada, Aotearoa (New Zealand) and Australia to assert specific cultural knowledges, protocols and relationships. The...se knowledges are grounded in continuous international exchanges and draws on the breadth of work within the field. This volume explores the way Indigenous visual art and culture operates within, and from, a structural framework that is unique to the cultural milieu. Through a selection of contributions by Indigenous curators, artists, and scholars, this book brings together perspectives that define curatorial practices, while simultaneously postulating Indigenous sovereignty and self-determination within the three countries. These compelling essays begin to unearth the connections and historical moments that draw Indigenous curatorial practices together and the differences that set them apart. With contributions from Nigel Borell, Freja Carmichael, Karl Chitham, Nici Cumpston, Leuli Eshraghi, Reuben Friend, Jarita Greyeyes, Ioana Gordon-Smith, Dr Heather Igloliorte, Jaimie Isaac, Carly Lane, Cathy Mattes, Kimberley Moulton, Lisa Myers, Dr Julie Nagam, Dr Jolene Rickard, Megan Tamati-Quennell, Josh Tengan and Daina Warren.

            To rattle off the hits of Neil and Tim Finn reads like a checklist of recent pop history. And to think it all began in sleepy rural Te Awamutu - a town whose name had a 'truly sacred ring', as Neil would famously recount - where Brian Timothy Finn fell in love with the Beatles, a...n obsession that would work its way into Neil's DNA.
