WHAT?


Our interest and work is centered mainly on, but is not restricted to, Australian indigenous contact with non-European groups prior to European settlement, initial European contact and the early colonial era. The evolution of understanding regarding the extent and shape of  the ‘great southern land’, early exploration of the coasts and surrounding seas, settlement and use as a penal colony all led to the development of Australia into the modern country it is today. We are interested in uncovering and telling the stories of that past within the wider context of Australia’s place in the region. The Foundation’s interests are academic and work is carried out to internationally recognised professional standards.
