Abstract

The Centenary of Federation Plaquing Program of Engineering Heritage Australia is put into the historical contexts of Federation and Australian engineering achievement. The levels of awards are explained. The seven Federation National Engineering Landmark awards are described together with the two Historic Engineering Marker awards. The projects are: the Kalgoorlie mines, the East-West Telegraph and the Trans-Australian Railway, the Broken Hill mines, the River Murray Works, Lake Burley Griffin and the Trees of Canberra Avenue, the Hawkesbury River Railway Bridges, and the change of gauge station at Wallangarra. The plaques recognize the breadth of the engineering contribution to a Federal Australia.
