As a nation girt by sea, global travel has always been central to Australia's identity; from Indigenous people to the passengers of the First Fleet leaving their homeland for a destination beyond the limits of the known world. We are a nation of immigrants, tourists and expats who are more at home than ever in the global village, where boundaries and borders start to shift for those who hold more than one identity or passport.
Small World will explore the way we travel now. Whether it's exploring wild, dangerous or weird places, or travelling not as passive tourists but by engaging. This edition will also consider how technology - from planes and television to social media and international banking - has changed our sense of the world.
This edition considers what we can learn from our own travels or flights of fancy and from those who reach our shores from other lands.
