The WikiProject on Australian history is a project aimed towards the development and expansion of articles on the history of Australia.

Articles maintained by this WikiProject are grouped in Category:WikiProject Australian history articles by using the history=yes parameter within the {{WP Australia}} template. Articles more relevant to descendant workgroups use special parameters (see below).

Usage: {{WP Australia|history=yes}}

Goals[edit]

To provide guidelines and recommendations for articles that describe all aspects of Australian history.
To improve Wikipedia's coverage of Australian history by creating, expanding, and maintaining such articles.
To address POV issues and tentative edits in articles within the scope of the project.
To serve as the central point of discussion for issues related to the history of Australia in Wikipedia.

Scope[edit]

The project generally considers any article related to prehistorical, historical or modern-day affairs of Australia and its territories to be within its scope. As history we regard the study and interpretation of the record of humans, families, and societies as preserved primarily through written sources. In other words, ambition of the project is to cover articles related to:

  • the history of ancient Australia.
  • the history of the indigenous Australians.
  • the history of European settlement in Australia
  • the present day history of Australia
