Author(s): Peter Spearritt


Where History Happened' reveals the hidden past of some of Australia's most intriguing towns and places, from mining settlements and whaling stations to monuments and historic houses in our capital cities. The stories that emerge, of remote religious communities, isolated penal colonies, places of Indigenous incarceration and environmental degradation and rejuvenation, describe a vast and complex country, with a heritage worth preserving. Part social, architectural, military, political and industrial history, part road trip travel companion, this book has something for every reader.
