The story of Eureka has been told to death. There is another, and it is far more interesting, replete with cross-dressing, actors and liberation. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
We’re all a nation of ‘others’, and the stricter English tests that migrants will now face should be a reminder of who we’ve been in the past.
She bedded Breaker Morant, she bent the truth, and she stole the attention of a nation. Daisy Bates’ story is one that needs to be retold.
It was the first times Australians fought overseas. Sadly, the reasons were anything but noble. No wonder we kept it quiet.
In 1979, NASA’s Skylab fell on an unknown patch of Australia. The media insanity that ensued deserves a retelling.
There has been only one attempt to use a plane as a means of extortion in this country. However, the story is much more than that Qantas flight.
The first female prisoners in this country were subject to awful conditions. However, they quickly fought back, becoming towering figures of rebellion, and great antagonism. Vale.
As Australians, we often feel left out of the diplomatic process. However, we’ll always have Herbert Vere Evatt, the man colloquially known as “the president of the world”.
In the late 1970s, Australia was dithering on whether to allow those escaping Vietnam and Cambodia to resettle here. However, while this was happening, one woman in a bikini managed to jump the queue.

This morning, I opened an email from Cricket Australia apologising for Steve Smith. As it was our volume that enabled the apology, I suggest it’s time we examine ourselves.
With the growth of our major cities quickly getting out of hand, the time is now to think outside the box…perhaps to the container.

Epigenetics is the latest scientific theory that believes that the trauma we suffer can be passed on to our children on a biological level.
After decades of decay, a movement in Newcastle brought the town back to life. Now developers and the council have killed it again.
Last week, the Manchester Art Gallery took down a 19th-century image because it depicted nudity. The naked truth applying our rules to the past is censorship. Nothing more.
As domestic violence is a complex issue, the full discussion is often not heard. One local organisation is quietly helping the male victims of the national crisis, and I endeavoured to meet them.
