History Tours in Australia
For a nation that was founded in 1901, Australia has developed a rich and exciting history. From its Indigenous past to its colonial heritage, Australia’s history is riddled with tales of hardship and turmoil, but the modern day result is a diverse nation with a vibrant and multicultural population. Taking a history tour in Australia will provide an insight into the colourful and sometimes dark history of years gone by. You’ll also visit historical features best known by the locals and get your share of sightseeing along the way.
If you want to take a step back in time and learn about Australia’s fascinating Indigenous heritage, a tour guide will take you there. Hear local folklore first hand from Aboriginal Australians, learn how the Indigenous populations lived off the land for so many years and listen to the soothing sounds of the didgeridoo played by local artists. Your guide will also explain the intricacies of Indigenous art and share age old legends that have been handed down the generations.
There are a number of guided tours which put Australia’s colonial history centre stage, while also showcasing the country’s spectacular landscapes and wildlife. Victoria and New South Wales are great places to start, both with firm roots in the Gold Rush era of the 1850s. South Australia also has its share of colonial history thanks to agriculture and mining industries. Explore Australia’s oldest German settlement – Hahndorf, stroll around its quaint European cafes, or take a horse drawn tram across to Granite Island.Read More ...
