Take a trip into the past––from the explosive beginnings of our planet
through the formation of the Australian landscape, the deeply entrenched
history of our Indigenous people and past the white-sailed ships of the
First Fleet to modern day Australia, in this fascinating journey
Featuring succinct entries on historical moments over the past 47 billion years, Australian Story
covers such topics as ecological change, social upheaval, politics,
invention, the industrial age, war, immigration, celebration, culture
and modern technology––and presents it in a way that is visual, fun and
thoroughly entertaining for Key Stage I and II children.
Illustrated with a striking collection of photographs and images from
the NLA’s digital collection, this is history for children like never
before. A fascinating snapshot of our country, Australian Story tells who we once where, who we are today . . . and where we are going.
