Barka: The Forgotten River is an exhibition developed by Uncle Badger Bates and Justine Muller with the Barkandji community.

Barka (the Darling River) is more than a body of water; Barka is a mother, an Ancestor, a life source, and in peril, along with everyone that lives along it. Stories, culture, knowledge and people in this exhibition advocate for the health and future of Barka.

This exhibition has now closed at the Australia Museum.
