Treasures of the National Library of Australia

I love looking through the digital photo collections at the National Library of Australia.

Some of my favourites are the beautiful watercolours done by John Hunter before he became the second governor of New South Wales.

These treasures form one of the earliest European records of Australian birds, and one of the first collections of drawings made during the European settlement of the country.
