A Country like Australia has been known worldwide for 200 years one of the worlds youngest countries if you will. Australian Pre-History are all about ficticous events and characters in a story called Dream time. Australian History compared to Italian Renaissance what would you pick 99% would pick the Renaissance.

This Event in Europe would be described as the cradle of civilisation and would be joyous discovery of Mathematics, The Arts, New Culture, Inventions, Family Feuds (Pazzi and the Medici). While Australian is about Colonisation, The States, Federation, WWI (Little Involvement), WWII (Some Involvement).

Australian History is not a very fun subject. The reason stating that is because most of the student body say that it is a topic with very little importance worldwide. The Australians sort of like countries as Kazakhstan are very quiet and do not get involved in much with world agenda's and if Australia is it is a very minor part.

Australian British history is a factual based history of 200 years it is significant in very few area's worldwide. These are the events which Australian History would be known as Interesting, Gallipoly, Kokoda Tracks, Attack at Sydney Harbour, Battle Of Britain And the Blocked Advance (Capitals due to Names).

In Australian History for the 1st 100 years it is based on the White Australia Policy, Colonisation and The Independent States all revolving about only Australian issues revolved around, racism and inequality but these are minor compared to the Jewish holocaust.

I do state that Australia has had some interesting history like the incident of the massacre in Gallipoly. But their is very insignificant and little history for a new-born nation.

Australians such as I are not a race we all have our own ancestors the term Australian is just people who moved and lived here with citizenship from a certain race. The Australians like I disputed have had very little involvement in world affairs. You don't see archaeologist in Australia because it is 200 years old.

The history of Austria to me (everyone has their own way to define "fun") is more interesting than that of the rest of the world. When you look at Australia, in comparison to New Guinea and other Oceanic countries, you can see exactly how it developed. Just like Galapagos developed unique species of animals, Austria's isolation caused development for different lifestyles. Because Man-is-Good has nothing better to do than try to kill any anti-agriculture arguments I have, Austria is a case that shows positive development without the use of farming. To clarify, Austria remained a hunting and gathering society for much longer than of New Guinea, who developed farming sooner than Austria because of the lack of resources.

In general, it is more interesting (for me) to study places that developed in isolation, opposed to places that had constant cultural diffusion and thousands of years of history of invasion and conquest. In example of this would be the Aztecs. The Aztecs developed their own system of writing, and complex astronomy, in absence of the help from already developed society. Had the Aztecs not been destroyed by the Spanish, the may have become one of the most advanced societies, greater sophistication of that in Post Renaissance Europe.

In conclusion, I think the fact that Austria was an isolated state makes it all the more interesting to study. In modern times, Austria is the home to many advance science, biology, and oceanography advancements. Lots of researchers go to Austria to study what naturally occurs there; there are something's that cannot be found anywhere else, such as certain species of unique animals and water life.

The history is still a mystery because Anthropologist and Archeologist are still uncertain about; when people actually came to Austria, and when Civilization started to emerge.

Austria involvement with the rest of the world is more on the subject of politics and government, opposed to history. WWII (to me) was not a "historical event" as much as a "major political" event.

To conclude; if you find studying development of humanity and civilization isolated from the "civilized" world, fun or interesting, then the history of Austria would be "fun".

I think you got mixed up you were talking about Austrian im talking about Australian History.

Australian History is A Country like Australia has been known worldwide for 200 years one of the worlds youngest countries if you will. Australian Pre-History are all about ficticous events and characters in a story called Dream time. More people would want to learn about the Victorian Era

The Victorian Era heradeled new discoveries about science, building and the process of urbanisation was invented. The greatest empire on earth was made and the longest ruler of England reigned. The crystal palace, one of the most increatable festivals on Earth, was made during it. Women started wanting the vote and people started to care fot the poor.

Australian History is not a very fun subject. The reason stating that is because most of the student body say that it is a topic with very little importance worldwide. The Australians are sort of like countries like Kazakhstan, they are very quiet and do not get involved in much with world ageda's and if so, playing a minor role.

Australian-British history is a factual based history of 200 years it is significant in very few area's worldwide. These are the events which Australian History would be known as Interesting, Gallipoly, Kokoda Tracks, Attack at Sydney Harbour, Battle Of Britain, Gold rush, rats of Tobruk, building of the Sydeny habour bridge, building of Canberra, the expolation of Australia And the Blocked Advance (Capitals due to Names).

In Australian History for the 1st 100 years it is based on the White Australia Policy, Colonisation and The Independent States all revolving about only Australian issues revolved around, racism and inequality but these are minor compared to the Jewish holocaust.

To me (I'm from America) anything other than American History or European History is better. If you have to learn about it every year from like 2nd grade until you finish school, it get old after like the second time...
