About The Book

Essential reading for travelers who wish to enjoy the amazing diversity of Australia.

The ancient Aboriginal way of life is described; early European sightings; and the establishment of the British convict colony in 1788, which dragged the continent into the modern world. The dynamic story of Australia in the twentieth century, its role in two world wars, the post-war discoveries of huge mineral deposits, its courting of Asia in recent decades, the return of vast areas of land to the Aborigines, and its confident cultural vibrancy in wine, food, film, and art are also examined.

Raves and Reviews

"Australia, whose chequered past merits more than 'convicts find gold then government,' is laid open deftly, and we are effortlessly brought from 53, 000 BC to the present day."
