This documentary shows the evolution of Australia, New Guinea and New Zealand over the last 2,000 million years ago. Animation is combined with aerial footage of the four main landform regions: The Western Shield, Central Basin, Eastern Highlands and the Island Arc from New Guinea to New Zealand.
Our collection comprises over 40,000 moving image works, acquired and catalogued between the 1940s and early 2000s. As a result, some items may reflect outdated, offensive and possibly harmful views and opinions. ACMI is working to identify and redress such usages.
