Charles Darwin: An Australian Selection

The impact that Charles Darwin's short visit to Australia in 1836 had on the man himself and on the emerging nation was profound.

Darwin found much in Australia to challenge and inform his thinking.

Richly illustrated with images of rare prints and paintings, Charles Darwin: An Australian Selection includes extracts from Darwin's Beagle diary and personal reflections by Robyn Williams, Tom Frame and Nicholas Drayson.

Now, more than 170 years later, Darwin continues to influence Australian attitudes to life and living.
