This section covers many aspects of Australian History from the early explorers of the 1500s through to the end of the 20th Century. Detailed information covers all major aspects and events covering the settlement and development of the colony, the explorers, bushrangers and goldrushes of the 19th Century, and Australia's involvement in two major world wars. Much attention has been focussed on the provision of Original Source Documents with access to explorer journals and the Historical Records of Australia. A special series of titles covers the good and bad interactions of the colonists with early Aboriginal communities. All this information is complemented with hundreds of historical Australian images.
