Stories of the Brooker Highway celebrates the rich histories and stories that surround the Brooker Highway.

Unearthed with the help of the Story Island Project during early 2017, these stories and images capture some of the overlooked, the surprising and the unusual features of a stretch of road that is so familiar to us all.

The stories and images featured in the exhibition have been collected from and created by communities across Hobart’s northern suburbs.

Stories of the Brooker Highway also includes creative stories and illustrations from young people who attend schools on the Brooker Highway, reimagining the life of the highway in new and exciting ways.

The Story Island Project is a non-profit organisation based in Hobart’s northern suburbs. The organisation is dedicated to supporting young people to improve their literacy skills through writing stories. Its activities are based on the belief that storytelling is at the heart of literacy, and story connects people to community.
