Summary
Almost from the start the European colonisers ignored the rights of the original inhabitants of Australia. The Indigenous peoples' tenure came from a land where property was only for the rich - here it was theirs for the taking. Indigenous resistance failed to stop Europeans securing the finest grazing and farming lands, and land ownership grew into an Australian obsession. Series on Australian history. Many reproductions of early drawings and paintings from the first days of the colony. Produced specifically to provide visual and written resources for the Australian History curriculum for Years 4-6
