For tens of thousands of years, our first people lived in harmony with the land.  When Europeans arrived in the late 1700s, things changed forever.  Now, children of many cultures and backgrounds are born in Australia or come here and make it their home.

The way Australian kids live – the things they do and wear, the food they eat, the books they read and the games they play – have changed over time.  Come on a journey through the years with our Australian kids.
