“Isolation is Western Australia’s DNA,” writes Stephen Scourfield in his new book, Isolation. But this year — a year unlike any other, they tell us — travel restrictions beyond WA have obliged us to look inwards more intently than ever before.

How fitting, then, that the new WA Museum Boola Bardip — “Many Stories” in Whadjuk Noongar language — should have opened at this time, holding up a mirror to ourselves, enriching our understanding of this State as we explore its geology and topography, its flora and fauna, its past, present — and future.

The mix of modern and historic architecture, of new and old galleries, of traditional and high-tech interactive storytelling, of Aboriginal and European histories is breathtaking.

It not only inspires us to explore WA more deeply, with more awareness; it enriches our understanding of journeys already undertaken.

WA Museum chief executive Alec Coles explains: “The museum can and should be a key to all of this,” he says. “I’m not saying we’ve got there yet, but (the museum) should almost be like the heart of the State and represent the spirit of our people.”
