For 60,000 years the rest of the world had pretty much left Australia and its Aboriginal nations alone. Then it became a home for Britain's criminals and poor. Now a con man had found gold and suddenly everyone was heading to Australia: adventurers, revolutionaries, camels... Australia would never be the same. Join the heroes and villains of the past as they hunt for nuggets, struggle across unknown deserts and triumph in one of the greatest engineering marvels the world has ever seen, in the next action-packed instalment of Fair Dinkum Histories! It's history as you've never seen it before.
