This simple invention takes its name from the Western Australian gold-mining town where it was invented in the 1890s by clever miner Arthur McCormick. He designed a simple cool box that worked on the principle of evaporative cooling. With a light breeze, hessian covering and a little water, food could be kept a few degrees cooler than the outside temperature. These safes were often found on verandahs before the widespread introduction of domestic refrigerators in the mid-20th century.

A true icon of Australian suburbia, but one that should rightly be called the Toyne's Hoist! Committed to his invention throughout war and personal tragedy, Gilbert Toyne patented the enduing design, manufactured and marketed it decades before Lawrence Hill's hoist arrived. Toyne's legacy was to invent one of the most practical, labour-saving devices to grace Australian backyards in 20th century - his galvanised-metal, rotary clothes hoist.

Early in the 19th Century, before equipment and practices to prevent the spread of bacteria in hospitals, approximately 50 percent of patients died from surgery and many women died during childbirth from infection. In 1946, Eric Ansell invented the first automated glove-dipping machine. His son, Harvey, later developed the process further to make perfectly sterile and disposable gloves for the medical industry.

William Scurry, a Melbourne-born architectural modeller, invented the drip rifle to aid the Gallipoli evacuation. The invention created the illusion of manned trenches by popping shots out from the trenches during the critical final stage of the Anzac's evacuation of the Gallipoli Peninsular. The drip rifle is an impressive example of Anzac ingenuity and resourcefulness.
