Talk by Robert Macklin

August 3, 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Talk by author Robert Macklin

Our function for August will be a talk by Robert Macklin about his book Dragon and Kangaroo.

The Dragon and the Kangaroo is the fascinating story of the Chinese presence in and influence on this country – our intertwined history from colonial times to today.

Chinese ‘presence’ in Australia extends from well before the time of Captain Cook – trading with northern Australia long before Europeans came here – right through to the present day, with Chinese activities ranging from being the main customer for our iron ore, to their very extensive intelligence operations here.

The talk will be on Tuesday 3 August in the Catchpole

Room at the Southern Cross Club, Jamison, at 7.30.

Those who wish may join others for dinner at 6.00 in the

bistro. Please book by emailing acfsevent@gmail.com by 28 July.
