With some of Australia's strongest population growth, thousands of people from around this country and throughout the world are setting up their new lives here. This brand new exhibition explores the journeys of some of our newest residents, as well as some of those who have lived here for a long time.

Lead artist, Tim Stone, has been out and about the Shire, from the hills to the Bay, and the farms to the suburbs. capturing the stories and images of its landscapes, buildings and people in new ways, utilising digital arts technologies to present these diversities.

Unknown Journeys also represents the beginning of a new stage in the evolution of Cardinia Cultural Centre, as it transforms into a hub for artists of all ages - creating, making, exhibiting and performing.
