Archives of Australian Journeys

 

Research travelers Suzzanne Kelley and Tom Isern initiated the Australian Journeys project in 2009. The project eventually will produce journey-specific, content-rich websites as a guide for history students and heritage travelers. Completion of the project will take many years, however, and so in the meantime, we are archiving and disseminating materials gathered along the way. (For plans and progress, see our catalog of Australian Journeys.)
