Author Evening with Grantlee Kieza, "Macquarie"
Lover, fighter, egalitarian, autocrat.
Lachlan Macquarie is credited with shaping Australia's destiny, transforming the harsh penal colony of New Holland into an agricultural powerhouse and ultimately a functioning society. But was he the man who sowed the seeds of a great nation or a tyrant who destroyed Aboriginal resistance?
Partly drawing on Macquarie's rich and detailed journals, Macquarie is a lively and engaging portrait by a consummate biographer.Get tickets
