Despite its young European history, Australia's does have a number of famous and infamous people, that not only help to influence and shape our nation, but provide the history and landmarks that are visited and read about by travellers throughout the continent. Famous Aboriginals, 'the original inhabitants', past and present are included, as we grow this section over time.

Bushrangers like Ned Kelly and John Fuller (alias 'Mad Dan Morgan') created their slice of history. The literary works of authors like Banjo Paterson, Henry Lawson and Miles Franklin are just some of the writers whose influence on Australia continue today.

Works by indigenous artists like Albert Namatjira and Clifford Possum Tjapaltjarri are much sought after works, whilst history is written with activist Vincent Lingiari.
 

Music is a huge influence from classical opera singers such as Dame Nellie Melba and Joan Sutherland to pop music from groups and individuals such as The Seekers, Rolf Harris and singers such as Kylie Minogue and Keith Urban who have gained celebrity status in today's media focussed world.

In our more modern times, history continues to be made with music and film a juggernaut of influence on people, although in these times of fast living and influences that are here today and gone tomorrow, it will be interesting to see in 100 years time what is remembered as being influential.

Anyway, listed here are just some of the many famous Australians that have made an impact on Australia. Over time, we will continue to add to this section, as well as providing link resources to some of those other great sites about Australian, past and present, the great, the famous and the not so famous.
