1850 - Present Day
In recent history, Australia's relationship with nature has evolved with the arrival of settlers and increased population. We are more aware of the importance of preserving our natural environment. In this programme we investigate how white settlers with a different view on nature attempted to modify Australia's landscape to suit foreign farming practices. Nature was a tough adversary, but provided the early Europeans with enough resource to grow into a nation. We discuss the creation of Australia's first national park in 1878, which forever changed future relationships with the land. Also investigated is the need to respect historical, traditional and cultural heritages of the land.
