A time for anniversaries

19 JULY 2019
50 years ago this month...
  • The first astronauts landed on the moon...and
  • Cambridge University Press opened its Australian office.

An agent for the Press was first established in Australia way back in 1892 with an official local branch opening in July 1969.

The past 50 years has seen Cambridge University Press Australia grow alongside the local education system, developing resources to meet the needs of Australian teachers and students. Our commitment to providing authoritative, locally developed content has seen us become a leader in educational resources across a range of subjects.

Our latest science publication is a brand new series: Cambridge Science for the Victorian Curriculum.

Year 7 students can get involved in the celebrations around the Moon landing anniversary with the Explore! activity: How many times have astronauts landed on the Moon? See below.
