Borella's War: the making of a legend

Albert Borella came to the Northern Territory in 1913 to try his luck on the agricultural fields of the Daly River. Just over a year later he journeyed back to Darwin by foot, on horseback and finally by train, determined to enlist for service in the First World War.

Borella served at Gallipoli and on the Western Front with great distinction. Showcasing rare photographic material, this impressive exhibition locates Borella's remarkable personal story within the broader story of Northern Territory development and the significant contribution made by Territorians to the First World War.

Find out more about Albert Borella at The Borella Ride, the Northern Territory Government's flagship Anzac Centenary activity.
