A unique permanent interpretive gallery exhibition | To be completed in
April 2012, this will be a unique chance for visitors to immerse themselves
in the rich culture and heritage of the region. One unique aspect of the
exhibition will be a display on the Dawson’s burrowing bee, Amegilla
dawsoni, one of the world’s largest bees which nests in arid claypans in the
Gascoyne. So unusual are these bees that David Attenborough travelled to
the Kennedy Ranges with a BBC crew to film them.
