Abstract

The 18th National Conference on Engineering Heritage had the theme "From the past to the future". Newcastle was the first colonial settlement outside Sydney and quickly grew into being one of the major wealth generators in Australia: it was the origin of the first Australian export and is now the largest tonnage export port in the country. It was an ideal city to contemplate the ways in which engineering has contributed and continues to contribute to the economic and social development of Australia since its founding as a convict settlement in 1788.
