Publisher's Summary

Australian History For Dummies is your rough-and-ready tour guide through Australia's whirlwind past. We'll introduce you to the people and events that have shaped this "Land Down Under" (and why it's called that). You'll see how Indigenous Australians lived in Australia for over 65,000 years. You'll be there as British colonists explore Australia's harsh terrain. You'll delve into the recent past, giving you insight into modern-day Australia and what's next.

Australia is a place unlike any other place, and its wild history, with more ups and downs than you'll care to count, makes for a fascinating listen. Bushrangers, the gold rush, the first female prime minister—it's all inside. This new edition fills in the last ten years of history and covers issues faced in the twenty-first century.

  • Explore the history of indigenous Australia from the ancient past to the modern day
  • Watch Australia put itself on the map—learn about the intrepid explorers and the discovery of gold
  • Understand how and why the states were united and meet the major players who made it happen
  • Examine the social, economic, and political changes that made Australia what it is today
