Mrs Larritt celebrates the caring role and early married life of Maggie Larritt (1835 -1908), wife of the first Surveyor of Bendigo. This body of work acknowledges the singularly European view of the colonial migrants as they lived on Dja Dja Wurrung land.

This exhibition was originally presented at Dudley House, Bendigo - once the Surveyor's Office and residence - and home to Maggie and her family.

(NB Upside-down Country - The name given by the Dja Dja Wurrung to their land desecrated by gold mining.)
