What are the most precious relics of Australia’s past? It’s a topic that will always bring many different opinions. However one man, who has a handle on most of this is pop historian, Peter Luck, who headed up television programs and penned many fine books in the past.

Australian Icons contains an extraordinary collection of objects, some magnificent, some tatty, some amusing, some poignant, each of which has had a significant part to play in the Australian’ consciousness. These relics are lovingly preserved in dozens of different institutions in Australia and around the world but here they can be seen all at once for the first time. Australian Icons will take you on a glorious journey back in time.
