We all need a hero, someone we can look up to and admire.
There are many great Australians who have shown compassion, bravery and humanitarianism.
The Aussie Heroes series introduces children to heroes who have made an important contribution to Australian society.
Each hero has helped others in need, and in turn shaped history.
This new series is for primary school aged children. It will give them an insightful look into the lives of great Australians.
The second book in the series, Sir Edward “Weary” Dunlop will be released in February 2011.
Each book comes with teaching notes which can be downloaded from the Teachers' Resources section of the New Frontier website.
