"Can you name Australia's longest-serving prime minister?
Which Australian sportsman is the only cricketer to have received a
knighthood from the Queen? What important scientific discovery is Howard
Florey famous for? In Australia s Greatest People and their Achievements,
you will learn the answers to these questions and discover many more
stories about great Australians who have helped shaped our nation.
Australia is a young country, but in the short time since our recorded
history began we have achieved remarkable wealth and prosperity across
many areas of life. From business to science, politics to sport ,
science to the arts, and entertainment to social justice, we are a
country of achievers. Many of the people in this book came from humble
beginnings, but worked hard to achieve their dreams. These stories will
show you that with hope and dedication, almost anything is possible. Be
inspired! Filled with information, interesting fact pages, breakout
boxes and loads of illustrations, this is a fun and inspiring book for
people of all ages, and especially children aged 12+, to dip into."
