Australian Visionaries

Free Miegunyah e-classics—six classic Australian titles now available as e-books, free of charge.

Anyone with a passing knowledge of Australia’s architectural history will be aware of the resonance of Robin Boyd, the renown Victorian architect and polymath. Robin Boyd: A Life, the biography by Geoffrey Serle, embodies the spirit of who Boyd was; a leader in Melbourne’s Modern Architecture movement, a visionary in urban design, and passionate about Australian identity.

Charles Conder was one of the youngest, most original and most talented members of the Heidelberg School of impressionist painters, and one of the few to achieve a lasting reputation outside Australia. Anne Galbally's splendid biography is as passionate and fascinating as her subject.

John Poynter's biography of Russell Grimwade — an extraordinarily diverse Australian industrialist and the founder of the bequest which endows the Miegunyah imprint — illuminates not merely the life of Grimwade as an individual, but also his class, his generation and his country.

Robert Menzies is more than…

Robert Menzies is more than an account of a remarkable public figure. As the story unfolds, the reader is given telling glimpses of the private man, the man shaped by his family and early years, revealed in his diaries and personal correspondence. Here is the story of the making of the man who went on to create the Liberal Party from the ashes of the UAP and to become a towering figure in post-war Australia.

Philip Ayres' life of Mawson is the definitive biography of the polar explorer, who died in 1958. In this richly researched and well-illustrated work, he paints a picture of a man who was a brave and resourceful hero, but also a deeply flawed personality.

A World That Was is a fine-grained account of traditional Aboriginal life in settled south-eastern Australia. It recreates the world of the Yaraldi group of the Kukabrak or Narrinyeri people of the Lower Murray and Lakes region of South Australia.
