Transportation to Australia | The National Archives

I’ve got about, as you can see from your handout, there’s about 50 or 55 slides here so it’s going to be a relatively quick gallop through records we’ve got but also some records elsewhere relating to transportation to Australia. And throughout the talk I’m going to use a case study of someone called John Jobson who was transported to Australia in 1820 and you’ll see him cropping up in some of the records that I put up on the screen.

John Jobson, interestingly enough, was the great, great, great, great grandfather of a member of the staff of The National Archives. A member called Adrian Jobson is one of our medieval specialists so it’s thanks to Adrian that we can use him as a guide to the records that we hold here.

Mandatory bicycle helmet laws in Western Australia

Australia’s National Cycling Participation 2019 survey confirms that the equivalent of more than a million fewer people are riding bicycles each week in 2019 than in 2011, and suggests 35.1% fewer Australians aged 9yo+ were cycling each day in 2019 than in 1985/86, despite 62% population growth (see report analysis).

Australia’s largest cycling organisation, the Bicycle Network, has reversed its policy and from 31 October 2018 is recommending a five year trial permitting people older than 17 to choose whether they wear a helmet when riding on footpaths or off-road cycle paths (read recommendation and policy paper).

The recommendation follows a 14 month inquiry which had 19,327 respondents, with 58.3% supporting a change to helmet laws and opinions expressed by Australia’s leading experts on helmet law efficacy (read submissions including the opinion of this website).
