The Great Wall of Warburton is the backbone of a house built to give its owner a new life. Peter Falvey's busy life in Melbourne as a foreign aid project director made him yearn for the tranquillity of the country and he found land in the Warburton Valley. His vision for a house was that it should be serene, peaceful with a reflective ambience, fit into the environment and be somewhere that one day he could live full-time.

The boomerang is one of Australia's unique emblems and humanity's first heavier-than-air flying machine. Its aerofoil design wings prove that Indigenous Australians understood the physics of aerodynamics at least 20,000 - possibly even 60,000 - years before the field of aeronautical engineering was established. Its returning spin is achieved by one wing moving faster than the other, known now as gyroscopic precession.

William Henry Bragg and his son, William Lawrence Bragg, were the pioneering scientists who invented X-ray crystallography. It was William Lawrence who developed Bragg's Law, which - when combined with his father's newly-invented spectrometer - enabled scientists for the first time to observe the atomic structure of our physical world. The Nobel Prize-winning father and son team radically changed the world, with their invention paving the way for new discoveries in chemistry, space exploration a
