French Lives in Australia

By Eric Berti and Ivan Barko

For a long time the French presence in Australia remained understated, yet French nationals were present from the very beginning of the colonial period. Their contribution to the European discovery of the country and to its economic, cultural and social development was significant. This book tells the stories of twenty-four leading French figures in Australia who contributed to the rapprochement between the two countries.
