Event description

Description

Throughout the 19th and early 20th century, many literary giants visited Australia and recorded their observations. Was Darwin impressed? Did Kipling prefer Melbourne or Sydney? Why did Trollope stay so long? Was Mark Twain’s humour appreciated? Why was Conan Doyle here? Susannah Fullerton and Chris Brown discuss the itinerary of these literary tourists and what they had to say. Learn more about Susannah’s book Brief Encounters.
