Australia has long been a nation of innovators; from unique and quirky inventions to everyday items, all designed to make Aussie lives better. Join us for a seminar that takes you on a journey through the history of Australian patent submissions, trademarks and designs. Hear from inventors in their own words as they sing the praises of their innovations in domestic appliances, farming tools, sport and technology, just to name a few! (about 1 hour).

FOLLOWED BY A PRESENTATION FROM QFHS MEMBERS WHOSE ANCESTORS HELPED INVENT REFRIGERATION. : CHRIS SCHUETZ, WENDY ANGLISS AND BEVERLEY HAY.

Some pre-NAA inventions towards a very important technology of Queensland: refrigeration. Quite ordinary individuals often took out patents in one of the Australian Colonies or in Britain. Here are three ancestors of QFHS members who worked on making refrigeration available to industry, enabling the meat industry to thrive both locally and for export.
