Landmarks explores Australian history since European settlement in 1788, with stories of people and places across the continent.
Landmarks considers 10 big themes in Australia’s past, each focusing on an idea, ambition, philosophy or problem. It takes visitors on an imaginative ‘tour’ to explore how these themes have unfolded in particular places and inspired people in their approach to living in this country.
