Abstract

Connecting the Nation - Australia’s Aviation Heritage is an online portal to Australia's aviation heriatge and a repository for digital collections.
Aviation has been an integral part of Australia’s national story. For both city dwellers and those who live in remote and regional communities, aviation has shaped and reflected the cultural and technological history of the 20th century.

Australia has a rich array of aviation related heritage – from surviving aviation infrastructure, working sites, aircraft and technical equipment, to the vast amounts of archival and pictorial material often cared for by volunteers, to the important collections in Australia’s major museums –this portal helps to reveal and make connections between these diverse sources of heritage.

Investigate Our Heritage to learn more about the forces which have shaped Australia’s aviation, and where to find aviation heritage collections and historic sites.

The portal is an initiative of Airservices Australia, in conjunction with a team of researchers from the University of Canberra.
