These are Our Stories. From bushrangers and prime ministers to how Australian inventions have changed the world.

Exploring Australia wasn’t easy.

First, someone had to find it.

Then someone had to work out how much of it there was.

Then someone had to find out what was in it.

From ocean voyages to desert crossings, discover how European explorers put their lives on the line to fill in the map of Australia.

About The Author

Christopher Miles used to trace maps from the Melways and go exploring in outer suburban Melbourne on the weekends. He didn't discover any new continents, but he did find a park he hadn't seen before. Well, more a strip of grass than a park, really. But the thrill of discovery - and his fascination with maps - never left him.

He has worked as a hospital orderly, proofreader, bookseller, editor and website developer, and lives in Melbourne with his partner, his daughter and the ghosts of three chickens.
