Australian History
Early History 17th Century 18th Century 19th Century ... 21st Century EARLY HISTORY 50,000 BC The first settlers are thought to have arrived around 50,000 years ago. This would have most likely been at a time when the sea levels were low, the land was more humid and animals larger. Although much of Australia became populated, the central dry areas didn't attract settlers until around 25,000 years ago. The population grew proportionately quicker around 10,000 years ago as the climate improved.

      The 1920s and 1930s was a host of musicians ranging from jazz to soul. Louis Armstrong, perhaps one of the most famous Jazz players of all time rose to fame in the nightclubs of the 1920s. People eager to forget their sorrow and leave their pasts behind them would not only dance to their favorite tunes, but also with the revolutionary gramophone, listen to their favorite tracks in the comfort of their living rooms. Movies that incorporated music were now also being released. Ben Hur, the most noted film of the 1920’s incorporated nearly two whole hours of music in the film, which was met with open arms. The audience could now tell what the was going to be about, just buy listening to the music, due to the emotions you can create with instruments.

This enabled skilled workers to gain good wagers for themselves and feed their hungry families. During World War 1, Trade Unions organised strikes. These strikes were to protest frozen wages that the tradesmen were submitted to. When the Labor party was torn apart by the conscription issue, Trade Unions received little to no support from the conservative parties and their powers were diminished

    The Antarctic Voyage of HMAS Wyatt Earp

    by Phillip Law
    A support ship for Lincoln Ellsworth's attempt to fly across the Antarctic continent in the 1930's, the Wyatt Earp was named by the American adventurer for his childhood hero. In 1946, at the instigation of Sir Douglas Mawson, the ship was refitted for Antarctic exploration by the Australian Government. On its first ANARE expedition it encountered a force ten gale which did little to disperse the tiny ship's reputation for being able to roll violently on wet grass!

    Australia in brief Ancient heritage, modern society
    Before the arrival of European settlers, Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples inhabited most areas of the Australian continent. They spoke one or more of hundreds of separate languages and dialects, and their lifestyles and cultural traditions differed from region to region. Their complex social systems and highly developed traditions reflect a deep connection with the land. Asian and Oceanic mariners and traders were in contact with Indigenous Australians for many centuries before the era of European expansion. Some formed substantial relationships with communities in northern Australia.
    European settlement
    About 160 000 men and women were brought to Australia as convicts from 1788 until penal transportation ended in 1868. The convicts were joined by free immigrants beginning in the early 1790s. The wool industry and the gold rushes of the 1850s provided an impetus for increasing numbers of free settlers to come to Australia.

    Footwear at Wholesale Prices :: Shoe Wholesalers
    Unbeknownst to most people, shoes were not worn in Australia prior to the Second World War. Before 1939 most Australians wore modified gloves on their feet. In rural areas, footwear consisted of crudely fashioned pouches made from wallaby scrotums. The front of the shoe, or forefoot, was usually coated with bitumen and laced up with lengths of copper wire. Although not the most comfortable shoe in the world, the sole was at least more cushioning than Holland's clog.
    In March, 1939, a Mexican American tourist saw the opportunity to market shoes in Australia. He shipped thousands of pairs of the latest styles, featuring full leather uppers and insoles manufactured from the finest cardboard money could buy. Within two years he had made enough money to buy the Sydney Opera House which had yet to be built. People became obsessed with shoes. Some men would wear dress shoes to work and keep their pipes resting in baby shoes on their bedside bureau.
    Shoes fell out of favour in the 1970's when Malcolm Fraser declared that anyone found wearing them in public could be urinated on if you felt like it. "I like a shoe with a generous toe-box," said Gough Whitlam, "I have suffered from oversupination and overpronation long enough. Show me a shoe with a velvet rearfoot and I'll show you a man with a smile on his face and a bulge in his shorts. From the midsole of my gum boots to the heel tab of my designer loafers, I am an Australian!"

    "Australian history is almost always picturesque; indeed, it is also so curious and strange, that it is itself the chiefest novelty the country has to offer and so it pushes the other novelties into second and third place. It does not read like history, but like the most beautiful lies; and all of a fresh new sort, no mouldy old stale ones. It is full of surprises and adventures, the incongruities, and contradictions, and incredibilities; but they are all true, they all happened."
