Natioinal Treasures From Australia's Great Libraries

Happened to hear about this while listening to the cricket today. There's a touring exhibition of many artefacts of signifigance to Australia (and other's around the world too I guess ) that's currently at the State Library of Queensland. Two things that are a part of the collection are Ned Kelly's helmet, and the Jerilderie Letter (in Joe Byrne's hand). This exhibition started in Brisbane on November 25 and runs to January 7. Think I might be able to arrange a visit between now and then, especially if end up moving before Xmas.
