Transport: An Australian History

Author(s): Robert Lee

Sport & Transport

Trains, planes, boats and cars. What did Australians do before the invention of modern transport? Aborigines travelled by foot and used canoes made from large sheets of bark stripped from eucalyptus trees, but with European settlement new ideas and technologies emerged for crossing our vast and challenging country. Transport brings together the stories of heroic, groundbreaking and everyday enterprises in transport in shipping, roads, rail and aviation across Australia. This is the fascinating story of how transport in Australia has developed, and how it has influenced our lives.
