Ideal for classroom viewing and discussion.

The exploits of Australia’s explorers played a key role in the history of this nation, opening up the vast interior to settlement and economic development. But the explorers also brought disaster for many of the Aboriginal people whose lands they traversed.

Now your students can relive the exploits of these explorers, including:
• Bass and Flinders charting the coastline of Australia.
• Blaxland, Lawson and Wentworth crossing the Blue Mountains.
• Hume and Hovell blazing the trail to Port Phillip (Melbourne).
• Sturt solving the mystery of the rivers.
• Eyre and Wiley trekking across the Nullarbor to Western Australia.
• Leichardt unlocking the North. 
• Kennedy’s fatal journey to Cape York. 
• The triumph and the tragedy of Burke and Wills in their quest to cross Australia from south to north.
• McDouall Stuart's epic journey through the Centre to the Top End.
• Giles and the Forest brothers opening up the West.

The video also examines the vital role Aboriginal people played in the history of Australian exploration, both those who took part in expeditions as well as those whose lands the explorers crossed.
