“This is the history of a young nation and its attempts to settle and secure a free community on an old continent.  In contrast to the histories of many other nations, its highlights have not been wars and revolutions.  Rather, Australia’s history has been one of steady growth leading to the progress of the twentieth century in which Australia has grown much faster than many traditionally richer and more populous nations.  Even today, Australia has a population of only twelve million people, inhabiting a continent of some three million square miles.  Australia’s nearest neighbour, Indonesia, has a population of some one hundred and twenty million people living in an area of little over half a million square miles.”
