The Australian Imperial Force was tasked with retaking Borneo from the Japanese during the Second World War. Members of Z Special Unit were inserted behind enemy lines to gather intelligence, survey the terrain, and organise local resistance ahead of the invasion. Mutual respect and the forging of solid relationships between Allied troops and the local peoples were crucial to the operation’s success. Join curators Robyn van Dyk and Christine Helliwell for a tour of the exhibition and hear stories of Z Special Unit and the Dayaks they served alongside.
