Produced in partnership with the National Museum of Australia, The Story of Australia is an accessible, essential history resource for every home.
How did Australia’s earliest human inhabitants reach the island continent? How did a far-flung colony and military outpost transform into one of the wealthiest and most peaceful nations in the modern world? Dip into the pages of The Story of Australia to discover these answers and more.
The book explores key events and the people behind them, drawing on the Museum’s rich collection of objects, photographs and artworks. It provides a compelling overview of the enduring cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples, European exploration and colonisation, two world wars and the fast-paced development of the final decades of the 20th century.
