Australia’s Trade through Time

The Trade through Time website documents milestones in Australia’s trading history. Snapshot historical information is provided on trade prior to Federation in 1901 and then on a decade-by-decade basis from 1900 to the present.

The interactive timeline allows students, researchers and members of the general public to access tailored information about Australia’s trade history in a dynamic and engaging way.

We encourage users to explore this fascinating space and discover how Australia always has, and always will be, a nation built on trade.
