'A detailed analysis of the contribution that the mid twentieth-century "Walkabout" magazine made to Australia's cultural history. Spanning five central decades of the twentieth century (1934-1974), 'Walkabout' was integral to Australia's sense of itself as a nation. By advocating travel--both vicarious and actual--'Walkabout' encouraged settler Australians to broaden their image of the nation and its place in the Pacific region'.
