Talking at the Norwegian Seamen’s Church in Sydney.
150 people turned up in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in late October to hear lectures about the history of Norwegian immigration and settlement in Australia.
The talks were based on the new book Nedenunder og hjem – about Norwegian-Australian history.
Do you live in Australia and have an interest in the history of Norwegian settlement ‘Down Under’? Then you are most welcome to attend one of the three free lectures which will be given by Fredrik Larsen Lund in late October 2014. Fredrik’s topic is the story of Norwegians in Australia. The talks will be held in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane in cooperation with the local Norwegian community.
Colin Archer built the polar ship «Fram». Less well known is that Colin and his brothers also built a small part of Australia.
