The Hunt for Hoddle

Do you recognise this view?


Hoddle, Robert.  (1832).  Ginninginderry [i.e. Ginninderra] Plains, New South Wales.

Yesterday, three academics from the ANU came together at Ginninderry to see if they could identify the site on which the famous Robert Hoddle painting ‘Ginninginderry Plains” took place. While unfortunately Dr Mary Hutchison, Emeritus Professor Ken Taylor and Bill Gammage were unable to locate the site, the “Hunt for Hoddle” will continue .


Pictured: Dr Mary Hutchison, Visiting Fellow, Centre for Heritage and Museum Studies, Research School of Humanities and the Arts; Emeritus Professor Ken Taylor, Adjunct Professor at the Research School of Humanities and the Arts, Australian National University (ANU); Bill Gammage,  Author, Australian academic historian, Adjunct Professor and Senior Research Fellow at the Humanities Research Centre of the Australian National University (ANU)

Please get in touch if you have any information – we will keep you updated on the progress of the search!
