Hmmm. Moving to a secure site to keep Google happy has meant there are some old bits your browser might flag as insecure.

If you’re having trouble, here’s a work-around. Click on the heading of any of the posts on this page. Then, once you reach the individual post, click on the Australian Food Timeline header to get back to this first page.  The decade links will then work properly for the rest of your session. We’re working on it.

Watch out for the book

This book, A Timeline of Australian Food, by Jan O'Connell expands on much of the material from the Australian Food History Timeline website.I’m Jan O’Connell and this Australian food history timeline started as a spin-off from my food memoir, Me and My Big Mouth. But it kept expanding, and there’s a new book coming up that’s based on the timeline itself. It will be in bookshops in December 2017 – just in time for your Christmas shopping. More details here.

Meanwhile you can still buy the memoir by following this link.

Explore the timeline

This timeline traces the history of Australian food since white settlement in 1788, with a glance at what came before. Entries are by decade; scroll down and use the Load More button, use the menu to jump to a decade, or search for a specific topic.

But wait, there’s more

You’ll find other, mostly food-related musings in My (Other) Blog in the menu above, and on my author website Me and My Big Mouth. These are stories that didn’t fit the timeline format.

Or check out my YouTube channel here to see Australian food history timeline stories brought to life.
