[] Prologue

 

The History of Australia refers to the history of the area and people of the Commonwealth of Australia and its preceding Indigenous and colonial societies. Aboriginal Australians are believed to have first arrived on the Australian mainland by sea from Maritime Southeast Asia between 40,000 and 70,000 years ago. The artistic, musical and spiritual traditions they established are among the longest surviving such traditions in human history.

The first known landing in Australia by Europeans was by Dutch navigator Willem Janszoon in 1606. Twenty-nine other Dutch navigators explored the western and southern coasts in the 17th century, and dubbed the continent New Holland. Macassan trepangers visited Australia’s northern coasts after 1720, possibly earlier. Other European explorers followed until, in 1770, Lieutenant James Cook charted the east coast of Australia for Great Britain and returned with accounts favouring colonisation at Botany Bay (now in Sydney), New South Wales.

A First Fleet of British ships arrived at Botany Bay in January 1788 to establish a penal colony. In the century that followed, the British established other colonies on the continent, and European explorers ventured into its interior. Indigenous Australians were greatly weakened and their numbers diminished by introduced diseases and conflict with the colonists during this period.

Gold rushes and agricultural industries brought prosperity. Autonomous Parliamentary democracies began to be established throughout the six British colonies from the mid-19th century. The colonies voted by referendum to unite in a federation in 1901, and modern Australia came into being. Australia fought on the side of Britain in the two world wars and became a long-standing ally of the United States when threatened by Imperial Japan during World War II. Trade with Asia increased and a post-war immigration program received more than 6.5 million migrants from every continent. Supported by immigration of people from more than 200 countries since the end of World War II, the population increased to more than 23 million by 2014, and sustains the world’s 12th largest national economy.

[] Ned Kelly

 

“I tell you that highway robbery is only in its infancy,for the white population is been driven out of the labour market by an inundation of Mongolians,and when the white man is driven to desperation there will be desperate times”

Ned Kelly, letter to Sir Henry Parkes (Premier of New South Wales), 1879.

Ned Kelly the day before his execution

Edward “Ned” Kelly was an Australian bushranger of Irish descent. He was born in the British colony of Victoria as the third of eight children to an Irish convict from County Tipperary and an Australian mother with Irish parentage.

“And no man single handed, can hope to break the bars. It’s a thousand like Ned Kelly who’ll hoist the Flag of Stars.”

(From the poem “The Death of Ned Kelly”, by John Manifold, 1948).

“Cold blooded murder is… something different to shooting three troopers in self defence and robbing a bank… I did not blame them for doing their honest duty but I could not suffer them blowing me to pieces in my own native land… I give fair warning… I am a widows son outlawed and my orders must be obeyed.”

(Ned Kelly, The Jerilderie Letter, 1879)

“For I need no lead or powder to revenge my cause. And if words be louder, I will oppose your laws”.

(Ned Kelly, The Cameron Letter, 1878).

[] Daniel Deniehy

 

Daniel Henry Deniehy (1828-1865), orator, man of letters, lawyer and politician, was born in Sydney on 18 August 1828, the only son of Henry Deniehy (d.1850), produce merchant, and his wife Mary, née MacCarthy (d.1883); he was baptized on 28 August in St Mary’s Church. His father received a seven-year sentence at Cork for vagrancy in 1819 and arrived in the ship Hadlow in August 1820; his mother, also with a seven-year sentence, arrived in the ship Almorah in August 1824.

Daniel Deniehy

“ Remember that a painting before it is a battle horse, a nude woman, or some anecdote is essentially a flat surface covered with colours assembled in a certain order.”

Daniel Henry Deniehy

Only 150 cm (five-foot) tall and in poor health throughout his life, Deniehy possessed enormous energy and was a gifted orator. The Australian historian Manning Clark writes of him: “His heart was a battlefield between the cherub and the insect of sensual lust.” (He married Adelaide Hoals in 1852 and had seven children in nine years). “At times his face caught a fire and beauty that looked like phases of actual transfiguration. At other times his face was coarsened by days of drunken debauchery.” He died of alcoholism in Bathurst, aged only 37. In 1895 his remains were exhumed and reburied in Sydney’s Waverley Cemetery, where a monument was erected over the grave. An inscription on it reads:

The vehement voice of the South

Is loud where the journalist lies

But calm hath encompassed his mouth,

And sweet is the peace in his eyes.

. Daniel Henry Deniehy was an Australian journalist, orator and politician; and early advocate of democracy in colonial New South Wales.

[] Peter Lalor

 

Peter Fintan Lalor (1827–1889) was an activist turned politician who rose to fame for his leading role in the Eureka Stockade, an event controversially identified with the “birth of democracy” in Australia. He is famous for being the only outlaw to make it to parliament.

Known for Leader of the Eureka Stockade and Politician

The Eureka Rebellion in 1854 was a rebellion of gold miners of Ballarat, Victoria, Australia, who revolted against the colonial authority of the United Kingdom. The Battle of the Eureka Stockade, by which the rebellion is popularly known, was fought between miners and the Colonial forces of Australia on 3 December 1854 at Eureka Lead and named for the stockade structure erected by miners during the conflict. The rebellion lasted for less than half an hour and resulted in the deaths of at least 27 people, the majority of whom were rebels.

The event was the culmination of a period of civil disobedience in the Ballarat region during the Victorian gold rush with miners objecting to the expense of a Miner’s Licence, taxation via the licence without representation and the actions of the government, the police and military.The local rebellion grew from a Ballarat Reform League movement and culminated in the erection by the rebels of a crude battlement and a swift and deadly siege by colonial forces.

Mass public support for the captured rebels in the colony’s capital of Melbourne when they were placed on trial resulted in the introduction of the Electoral Act 1856, which mandated full white male suffrage for elections for the lower house in the Victorian parliament, the second instituted political democracy in Australia.3 As such, the Eureka Rebellion is controversially identified with the birth of democracy in Australia and interpreted by some as a political revolt

“ We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties. ”

[] Henry Lawson

 

Henry Archibald Hertzberg Lawson (17 June 1867 – 2 September 1922) was an Australian writer and poet. Along with his contemporary Banjo Paterson, Lawson is among the best-known Australian poets and fiction writers of the colonial period and is often called Australia’s “greatest short story writer”. He was the son of the poet, publisher and feminist Louisa Lawson.

Henry Lawson (1867-1922), by Lionel Lindsay

Henry Lawson has been revered as “The people’s poet”, “the real voice of Australia”, and was the first Australian writer to be granted a state funeral. He and his works are an integral part of our national identity and culture, and remain an inspiration to Australian nationalists in the struggle against the anti-Australian Establishment (whose traitorous days are coming to an end).

“So we must fly a rebel flag

As others did before us,

And we must sing a rebel song

And join in rebel chorus

We’ll make the tyrants feel the sting

O’ those that they would throttle;

They needn’t say the fault is ours

If blood should stain the wattle!”

(From “Freedom on the Wallaby”, 1891)

“And lo! with shops all shuttered, I beheld a city street

And in the warning distance heard the tramp of many feet…

Yes, the star of revolution’s shining now as redly bright,

And the shots from Eureka sound as sharp and near to-night”

(From “Land of Living Lies”, 1909)

[] Andrew Barton “Banjo’

 

Andrew Barton “Banjo’ Paterson (1864-1941). Poet, ballad writer, journalist and horseman.

‘Banjo’ Paterson, known as Barty to his family, was born Andrew Barton Paterson at Narrambla, near Orange on 17 February 1864. His parents, Andrew Bogle and Rose Isabella Paterson were graziers on Illalong station in the Yass district.

Paterson’s early education took place at home under a governess and then at the bush school in Binalong, the nearest township. From about the age of ten years he attended the Sydney Grammar School. He lived with his grandmother in Gladesville and spent the school holidays at Illalong station with his family.

After completing school the 16-year-old Paterson was articled to a Sydney firm of solicitors, Spain and Salway. He was admitted as a solicitor in 1886 and formed the legal partnership, Street and Paterson. During these years Paterson began publishing verse in the Bulletin and Sydney Mail under the pseudonyms ‘B’ and ‘The Banjo’.

In 1895, at the age of 31 and still in partnership with Street, Andrew Barton Paterson achieved two milestones in Australian writing. He composed his now famous ballad ‘Waltzing Matilda’ and his first book, The Man from Snowy River, and other verses, was published by Angus & Robertson, marking the beginning of an epoch in Australian publishing. This hallmark publication sold out its first edition within a week and went through four editions in six months, making Paterson second only to Kipling in popularity among living poets writing in English. His poetry continues to sell well today and is available in many editions, some of which are illustrated.

Paterson travelled to South Africa in 1899 as special war correspondent for The Sydney Morning Herald during the Boer War, and to China in 1901 with the intention of covering the Boxer Rebellion but he arrived after the uprising was over. By 1902 Paterson had left the legal profession. The following year he was appointed Editor of the Evening News (Sydney), a position he held until 1908 when he resigned to take over a property in Wee Jasper.

In 1903 he married Alice Walker in Tenterfield. Their first home was in Queen Street, Woollahra. The Patersons had two children, Grace born in 1904 and Hugh born in 1906.

During World War I Paterson sailed to Europe hoping for an appointment as war correspondent. Instead, during the course of the war he was attached as an ambulance driver to the Australian Voluntary Hospital in France and was commissioned to the 2nd Remount Unit of the AIF. He was eventually promoted to Major.

Banjo Paterson on the Australian $10 note.In Australia again he returned to journalism, retiring in 1930. He was created CBE in 1939. At the time of his death on 5 February 1941 his reputation as the principal folk poet of Australia was secure. His body of work included seven volumes of poetry and prose in many editions, a collection The Collected Verse of A.B. Paterson (1923), a book for children The Animals Noah Forgot (1933), and an anthology The Old Bush Songs (1905), in addition to his many pieces of journalism and reportage. Paterson’s role in Australian culture has been celebrated on the Australian $10 note.

[] Jack Lang

John Thomas Lang (21 December 1876 – 27 September 1975), usually referred to as J.T. Lang during his career, and familiarly known as “Jack” and nicknamed “The Big Fella”, was an Australian politician who was Premier of New South Wales for two terms (1925–27, 1930–32). He is the only Premier of an Australian state to have been dismissed by the state Governor.

“Anybody who is against the White Australia Policy is against the Australian nation”

Jack Lang.

It was 1931 with the Great Depression weighing upon Australia. Unemployment was over 450,000 in a population of 8 million. People were starving. Soup kitchens sprang up in most cities. Restless crowds move about the capital cities listening to the Communist Party proclaim the necessity of proletarian revolution. Australia had reached a crisis point. In New South Wales a man arose to proclaim a policy, a plan to beat the bust – Jack Lang.

[] Simpson and his Donkey

Jack Simpson Kirkpatrick was born in 1892 at South Shields in the north east of England. He came from a large family, being one of eight children. As a child during his summer holidays he used to work as a donkey-lad on the sands of South Shields. He had a great affinity with animals, in particular donkeys. Later he deserted ship in Australia when he heard of the war with Germany.

Fearing that a deserter might not be accepted into the Australian Army, he dropped Kirkpatrick from his name and enlisted simply as John Simpson. He was to become Australia’s most famous, and best-loved military hero.
