Artist's Description

Once again, students, from Gifu and Shizuoka Universities, in Japan, ( in the sixth year of an intensive 17 day course on Australian history and culture, convened by Dr Sonia Mycak of the Faculty of Arts, University of Sydney, specifically designed for Japanese students, ) have visited Smithfield, and Holland House, to learn about our Australian version of multiculturalism – exemplified by the Dutch community and Holland House.

First partaking of lunch, in the cosy, very Dutch restaurant, through the Dutch shop.
Followed by the talk in Holland House.

Abel Tasman, Dirk Hartog, and all the other Dutch explorers and sailors, who came and took a quick look, at Australia, 400 years ago, could not have known, that at least 250,000 of their country-men and women, would follow their lead, to Australia, and that one of them, would be telling a group of young Japanese visitors, in an outer-western Suburb of Sydney, while looking down on a miniature version of the capital of the Netherlands, consisting of replicas of the houses that were built in their time, all about their trips to the great south land.
