Made in Queensland: A New History (Paperback Edition)

Author: Ross Fitzgerald   Lyndon Megarrity   David Symons  



Paperback edition

Our People, Our Places, Our Stories.

In 1859, Queensland formally separated from New South Wales and became an independent colony. Since then it has grown into a dynamic state renowned for its extraordinary, diverse landscapes, wealth of intellectual and physical resources and a population that appreciates its unique lifestyle.

Made in Queensland examines the evolution of this vast state by considering all aspects of its recent history, from its people and its politics, to its events and its achievements. It charts the social, cultural, political and economic developments that have marked the past and defined the present - from the state's First Peoples and early colonial ambitions, to the impact of two World Wars and the arrival of international events such as Expo '88 and the Commonwealth Games, to the emergence of a technology-driven economy in the new millennium.

Extensively researched and generously illustrated, Made in Queensland captures the defining moments of the state's history and the everyday life of its people.
