Event description

Description

Geoffrey Blainey will discuss the much-anticipated second instalment of the history of Australia’s people – his most ambitious work to date – completing Australia’s story from the Gold Rush to the present day.

Blainey’s The Rise and Fall of Ancient Australia traced the story of the Indigenous Australians from their coming ashore at least 50,000 years ago. The Rise and Rise of a New Australia carries the story – through momentous changes – to the present day. Together, the two books form The Story of Australia’s People – the culmination of the lifework of Australia’s most prolific and wide-ranging historian.

Geoffrey Blainey is the recipient of Australia’s highest honour, Companion in the Order of Australia (AC) and is listed by the National Trust as a ’Living Treasure’.
