about

Imagine you had to sail 10,000 miles to an island in the South Pacific Ocean in an old wooden boat. In 1788 that happened to over 1400 English convicts, colonists, captains and men of the Marine Corps. Watched by fearful local Aboriginals, they established a base in a place called New South Wales, Australia. Who were these amazing people? What great stories do they have to tell? How did they survive and build the great and beautiful city that we now call Sydney? A city tour unlike any other, ‘Amazing People of Sydney' brings you in touch with real people who have left us a legacy that we can explore. Amazing People Worldwide® allows you to travel through time and meet some of the amazing people who helped Sydney develop. Read how Governor Arthur Phillip and Bennelong, the captured Aborigine, tried to build relations between the communities. Explore the inspiring lives of people such as Francis Greenway, Mary Reibey and George Howe. All of them arrived in Sydney as convicts and through their tenacious spirit, grew to become some of the most significant figures in the city. Find out about William Tom's discovery of gold and Captain Thunderbolt's great escape from Cockatoo Island. Be moved by the outstanding work of the tireless humanitarian, Caroline Chisholm and her work with young women. Discover how Banjo Paterson wrote ‘Waltzing Matilda'. These stories, and many others, come alive through BioViews®. A BioView® is a short biographical story, similar to an interview. These unique stories provide an easy way of learning about amazing people who made major contributions and changed our world.
