The Big Book of Australian History

By Peter Macinnis

The Big Book of Australian History, by award-winning writer Peter Macinnis, helps tell Australia’s story to its children – using images and facts from the National Library of Australia’s 10-million-strong collection.

The story begins with the breaking up of a landmass called Gondwana and takes readers on Australia’s real story, from the Dreaming to voyages of discovery, exploration to the lure of gold, Federation to the Great Depression and on to defending Australia and dealing with disasters.
