Through objects and stories from the National Museum of Australia’s collections, Landmarks: A History of Australia in 33 Places traces how people have lived across the Australian continent since 1788. It explores how generations have made their homes here, nurtured families, established enterprises and shaped the places that define our lives today. Landmarks addresses 10 themes in Australia’s past, each focusing on an idea or ambition that has shaped people’s choices and actions. The book considers how these themes have unfolded in particular times and places, revealing the ways Australians have engaged with each other and with local landscapes, ecologies and technologies to build diverse and distinctive communities.
