The culture and arts of the indigenous people of Oceania is celebrated by an extensive collection of items at the Anthropology Museum. Covering many aspects of daily life, the collection at University of Queensland includes 18,000 ethnographic items, 6,000 archaeological items, 6,000 photographs, and 600 historic items. Whilst the displays focus on Australia, the Torres Straits, Papua New Guinea, Melanesia, Polynesia and Micronesia, there are also comparative holdings from Africa and South East Asia. Objects such as tools, weaponry and body adornment are displayed and elements of lifestyles such as ceremonial activities, hunting, fishing and trade are well documented in the collection.
