Australia had been a place of Aboriginal camping for millennia, and so continued to be with the arrival of European settlers. Over a hundred years, the country was colonised underneath canvas - the nation was born in a tent.

From the campfire to the gas bottle, from a tarp slung on saplings to polymer tents and aluminium poles, Born in a Tent reveals how deeply our camping holidays connect us to the land, to the past, and to one another.
