It also encourages them to think about how Australia has evolved as a nation. The book features stunning images from the collections of the National Library of Australia by artists such as Ellis Rowan, John Gould and S.T. Gill. It also tells the stories of some of the most significant contributors to Australia's cultural, political, sporting and social life, including Captain James Cook, Governor Lachlan Macquarie, Prime Minister Gough Whitlam and aviator Charles Kingsford Smith. Ages 10+. This is a book to dip into and savour. Author Peter Macinnis' enthusiastic retelling of Australia's story is infectious. Among the big events and the great moments that have shaped the country, Macinnis also includes lesser-known, interesting details that bring Australian history to life. For example, did you know that, in 1934, the ABC developed 'synthetic' cricket, in which radio broadcasters gave a ball-by-ball description of the game, using sound effects to simulate the sound of bat on ball and the applause of the crowd? The Big Book of Australian History was created with the help of a consultant historian, Indigenous advisor, and experienced history editor and writer Dr Stephanie Owen Reeder, winner of the 2012 NSW Premier's Young People's History Prize

Topsy turvy world : fascinating Australian animals by Kirsty Murray( Book )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 139 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

To the first Europeans who came to Australia, everything seemed topsy turvy. Christmas was in the summer and trees shed their bark but not their leaves. And the animals were bizarre. There was a bird that laughed like a donkey and a type of greyhound that bound along on its hind legs like a hare. There was an animal in Tasmania whose nocturnal screeches sounded like the devil and a river creature that had a ducks bill at one end and a beavers tail at the other. The Europeans had never seen anything like these animals before and gave them names similar to those of the European creatures they already knew. They drew and painted odd pictures of them, showing they did not understand the animals habits. In one illustration, a wombat is standing on its back legs and in another a Tasmanian tiger is wrestling with a platypus of the same size
Augustus Earle, travel artist : paintings and drawings in the Rex Nan Kivell Collection, National Library of Australia by Jocelyn Hackforth-Jones( Book )

The major part of this resource is a series of 161 watercolours and drawings acquired in 1959 from Mr (later Sir) Rex Nan Kivell (1898-1977)
