Sunburnt Country — Icons of Australian motoring

Sunburnt Country — Icons of Australian motoring

Through this specially designed exhibition students can understand how the early settlers of modern Australia explored and opened up the country via motoring (the Talbot story).

They will interact with innovation through the story of the first vehicles and the Shearer Steam Carriage.

They will explore the introduction of the everyday car through the Holden story.

One of the popular highlights of Sunburnt Country is the quintessential Australian story of the servicing of Australia’s remote regions through the Tom Kruse truck and the Royal Mail delivery service.

These stories are supported by downloadable teacher-directed worksheets that cover:  Aboriginal Australia, Depth Studies, Timelines, Map Work & Research, Creative Writing and Research.
