“What did we do before modern transport?  Aborigines travelled by foot and used canoes made form large sheets of bark, but with European settlement new technologies emerged for crossing our vast country.  Transport brings together the stories of heroic, groundbreaking and everyday enterprises in shipping, roads, rail and aviation across Australia.
From saddle horse to the motorcar, form the inter-colonial steamship and express train services to the freedom of the skies offered by modern jet aircraft, transport is the backbone of our nation.  This fascinating book shows that the story of transport is the story of Australia.”
