1860’s Australia: A volunteer experience

I was trying to find online resources lately to try and transition from the first voyages to Australia during a history lesson to focus on colonised Australia and the differences between the two times in this country’s history.I found this ABC Splash Digi Book that has nine two to three minute clips covering various aspects of life living on a NSW sheep station during the 1860’s that was quite handy in guiding some group discussions around colonisation. It looks at most things from clothing, schooling, work life and relationships with local Aboriginal people. I found it helped the discussions quite a bit.
