The Australian history boom has busted, but there's hope it may boom again

    Research output: Contribution to specialist publicationArticle

    Abstract

    Last month, my wife and I took our ten-year-old daughter to Sovereign Hill, that colourful re-creation of gold-rush Ballarat. Now almost half-a-century old, it remains a deservedly popular tourist attraction. It has also moved with the times. There are many more knick-knacks for sale than I recall from my childhood things have moved well beyond personalised wanted posters and boiled sweets and it seems more representative of the history it purports to depict. The Chinese camp is striking. The creek is kept well supplied with gold specks for the latest generation of prospectors
