Resisting Australia's Wars

Conflict has been a large part of much of Australia's history. The colonisation of Australia involved the dispossession, often violent, of Indigenous peoples' land. In the more than 200 years since, Australians have often been involved in overseas wars.

There has always been resistance to these wars. Sometimes the opposition to war has been small; sometimes it has been strong. This section of the Museum details Australian involvement in war and the histories of those who have resisted this involvement.
