Johannesburg: Constitution Hill hosts an exhibition on how Australia helped end Apartheid!

The Australasian South African Alliance (ASAA), in partnership with the Australian High Commission in South Africa, Brand South Africa and Constitution Hill, has launched an exhibition titled "Memories of the Struggle: Australians Against Apartheid" in Johannesburg on 02 November 2017 at the Constitution Hill precinct. This multimedia exhibition is a photographic timeline of events that weaves together a narrative of Australia's involvement in the fight against apartheid. It will  share insights into the Australian contribution to the collapse of apartheid, such as the "Stop the Tours" movement which served to sever cricket and rugby relations with Apartheid South Africa. Such activism did not occur without political controversy or conflicts as related throughout the various sections of the exhibition.

The Constitution Hill precinct is located at 11 Kotze Street in Braamfontein, Johannesburg near the western end of the suburb of Hillbrow. The opening hours are daily from 09:00 to 17:00, with the final tour departing from the Visitor Centre at 16:00. Tickets for adults cost between R65 (1hrs highlights tour) and R350 (3hrs time travel tour). If you are visiting Constitution Hill as part of your City Sightseeing red bus tour, your red bus ticket entitles you to a 25% discount off your Constitution Hill ticket price on the day of your red bus trip.
