Abstract:

Which are the worst disasters in Australia's history? There are natural disasters such as bushfires, cyclones, earthquakes and floods. Cyclone Tracy, the Ash Wednesday fires and the Newcastle earthquake are examples. And there are tragic accidents caused by human error. These include early shipwrecks, mining disasters, the Westgate Bridge collapse, the Granville rail disaster and the sinking of HMAS Voyager. As well as describing the devastation caused by these events, this book also reveals the heroism of the brave men and women who were prepared to risk their lives for the safety and well being of others.
