About Us

Australian history became a passion for me back in 1975.

I began collecting and reading books on Australia's incredibly well documented history.

Wanting to share this knowledge, Australian History Promotions began with school performances that presented a history of our bushranging days.

Using the bushranger was a wonderful medium to interest children in our colourful past. The show led children through the convict days through to the execution of Ned Kelly in 1880.

Conducting guided tours around Sydney and Australia has also been my love. I'm no longer performing in the schools, but I still lead groups of people on tours as well as lecturing on various aspects of Australia's and Sydney's historical past to adult education classes and inbound tour groups.

Australian History Promotions has now taken on a new role of publishing. It began with the Ned Kelly bibliography What they said about Ned! and has moved into reproducing rare and hard to find books and publications on various aspects of Australian History ...
