VISIT THE NAARM EXHIBITION AT THE AUS SPORTS MUSEUM
While you’re at the ‘G getting a snap with the premiership cup, why not visit the Naarm Football Club exhibition at the Australian Sports Museum? With NAIDOC Week beginning on Sunday 3 July, now more than ever, is the perfect time to learn more about Indigenous culture and the history of it within the AFL.
The exhibition showcases the Demons’ Indigenous links and the club’s connection to culture and Country. Visitors will have the opportunity to see the club’s 13 Indigenous guernseys, worn by Melbourne across the AFL and AFLW competitions from 2014 through to 2022. Each design is accompanied by an explanation of their symbolic meaning, which speaks to how each honours past and present Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander players of the club.

Time: Daily: 10am – 5pm
