This Australian food history timeline traces the history of Australian food since white settlement in 1788. It started as a spin-off from my book, Me and My Big Mouth – a memoir about how our food has changed during the baby boomers’ lifetime. You can buy the book by following this link.

The timeline took on its own life and has expanded to include more about the previous decades (and centuries). It also mentions overseas events and trends that had an impact here. The entries are mostly brief, but there are lots of links if you want more information.Entries are by decade, scroll down (it’s long) and use the Load More button, or use the menu to jump to a decade. You can also use the search function to track down specific topics.
You’ll find other, mostly food-related musings in My (Other) Blog. These are stories that aren’t tied to specific dates so didn’t quite fit the timeline format.
