Developed by Manly Art Gallery & Museum's Ross Heathcote, Wendy Osmond and Midnight Oil drummer Rob Hirst, The Making of Midnight Oil examines the band's impact on social and cultural history across a 40-year period. It showcases iconic stage props, instruments, protest banners, hand-written lyrics, photographs and posters, as well as rare and exclusive footage and unreleased music, sourced from public and private collections and the band's own archives. From Sydney's northern beaches pub circuit in the 1970s, Midnight Oil's fierce commitment to environmental, social, anti-war and Indigenous rights issues went on to win the band audiences across the globe. With nearly a dozen songs on the Billboard charts and Diesel and Dust topping the list of 100 Best Australian Albums Of All Time, Midnight Oil was a force to be reckoned with.
