This exhibition will feature 30 detailed botanical watercolour illustrations of his plant discoveries, to be displayed together with associated quotes made by him in his addresses to the Linnean Society in the early 1800's.
There will also be a number of printed artwork/posters of information on plant species and discoveries which he describes in newspaper articles taken from the Logan Witness Newspaper in 1881.
The Queensland Herbarium (Department of Environment and Resource Management) will also be exhibiting some of the original plant specimens, collected by Father Scortechini during his travels through SE Queensland.
A small booklet featuring a summary of his remarkable but relatively short life will also be available.
