One of our closest neighbours with ~60,000 years of human civilization. We explore the history of Australia, from early Pacific colonization to British recolonization, the history of the states and provinces, the Australian view of the NZ/AUS relationship and more. Through deep time history, transportation, convictism, colonialism and globalization, we will see how the past has shaped Australia's present society, particularly in comparison to our own.
