A Century of Public Transport in Australia

This diverse collection spans 100 years and shows the relationship between Australia's growing population and evolving public transport systems.

Footage includes the North Shore ferry in 1899; Melbourne's iconic Flinders Street Station in the 1950s, already servicing one million passengers daily; and Sydney's Central Square (Railway Square). Now a busy bus interchange, Central Square was once a bustling tramway hub for Sydney's commuters back in the 1920s.
