Join John August for a fascinating exploration of the many marvels of human ingenuity he has encountered during his travels, including extraordinary engineering works, antique machines, scientific curiosities and strange objects. Discover a bridge built in ancient Roman style in Tasmania and the old shale-oil works of Glen Davis in NSW, along with early examples of steam engineering, old bridges, towers and whaling sites in Melbourne, Broken Hill, the Nullarbor plain and Western Australia. More familiar and closer to home are the somewhat controversial Hornsby Fountain and Water Clock and the Katoomba ropeway. The event will be at the Mitchell Theatre.
