I would like to have a timeline of Australian history spanning around my classroom. Indicating from Indigenous occupation, more than 65,000 years ago until contemporary history today. I thought this would be quite an easy resource to locate, not so. I can find the first inhabitants posters (designed to be pieced together from 65,000 years ago until 1788 and another timeline from 1788-1931 and I am happy they address the stolen generations, on the timeline. I cannot through the same resource get a continuation of history from 1931 to the present . Any chances I just haven’t found it?
Kind Regards
