Abstract

This paper outlines the engineering achievements in the field of Telecommunications in Australia during the 20th century (the first century of Federation) which profoundly affected the social and business cultures of this nation. Although concentrating on events in NSW similar projects proceeded throughout the Commonwealth. Further more detailed coverage is contained in back copies of the Telecommunications Journal of Australia (TJA) and other publications of the Telecommunications Society of Australia (TSA).
