Paula Grey explores how creative thinkers—collaborating or competing and always building on the work of their predecessors—have envisioned new ways to move about in the world. The story of travel is the human story. From the first migrations out of Africa on weary feet to horses, camels, rafts, chariots, steamships, trains, hot air balloons, cars, submarines, and moon rockets, humans have combined imagination, daring, and technical brilliance to create new vehicles and improve existing ones. Geography and culture have influenced the development of vehicles in far-flung parts of the world, and human travel has, in turn, exerted a profound influence on society and the environment. Whether escaping deprivation, pestilence, persecution, oppression, or fear—or seeking abundance, freedom, fame, fortune, or a fresh start—we have always been a traveling species, and it seems we always will be. Here is the story of humankind’s restless impulse to see what’s over the next ridge, beyond the next sunrise, on the next planet. Enjoy the journey!

This history of Australian travel and tourism is set in the context of the world scene. The forces which have shaped modern tourism are all traced and then related to the Australian experience. The book deals primarily with the business of tourism, but the way Australian people travelled through the years and experienced tourism is also part of the story. It traces the beginning of tourism, the first attempts at defining it, how ways of measuring it were introduced, how the need for research was acknowledged, and how levels of education relating to hospitality and tourism were progressively raised.
