Formatted Abstract/Summary
This is an exhibition catalogue for the Wild Australia: Meston’s 'Wild Australia' Show 1892-1893 exhibition, held at The University of Queensland Anthropology Museum, 10 February - 10 July 2015.

The University of Queensland Anthropology Museum specially commissioned this exhibition.  It makes a new contribution to Queensland history. The Wild Australia troupe began their rehearsals at a camp somewhere near the present University of Queensland campus at St Lucia, which was then a sugar cane plantation. Photographs from the Wild Australia Show have been assembled from collections held at The University of Queensland (the Fryer Library and the Anthropology Museum), Queensland Museum, the State Library of Queensland, the State Library of New South Wales, the Macleay Museum at the University of Sydney and the Powerhouse Museum. In the United Kingdom images were sourced from the private collection of Michael Graham-Stewart and collections in the British Museum and in Oxford University’s Pitt Rivers Museum.
