The Australian Country Historic Houses book takes you behind the scenes at some of the most significant homes across this vast land. From early colonial dwellings and grand 19th-century manor houses to more modest, though equally significant, 20th-century dwellings, this book builds a picture of Australian architecture and how it has evolved since European settlement.
We’ve had privileged access to some of our most significant historic houses and an entree to the lives the owners. As well, a look at the evolution of this country through the architecture that developed from each era. So if an accident of birth prevented you from having a historic house to call your own, pick up a copy of Australian Country Historic Houses. We’re sure you’ll come away with a better understanding of the forces that have shaped our country and our forebears’ bricks and mortar responses to dealing with their fluctuating fortunes.
