The unit examines the history of North Australia to 1911, the year the Commonwealth of Australia took over the administration of the Northern Territory. While the focus is on the Northern Territory, some attention is also given to the north of Western Australia and northern Queensland. Students will become familiar with published research on the topic, learn to identify, access and interpret primary and secondary source material, and gain an ability to communicate ideas in a clear and logical manner.
