Video Suburban sprawl reaches Doncaster East, 1960s

TLF ID M015457

In the 1950s and 60s, suburbs like Doncaster East arose to meet the changing needs of Australian citizens and the government. A 'baby boom' and increased immigration contributed to the expansion of Australian cities as more and more people sought to create their own 'Australian Dream' on a quarter-acre suburban block. Architect Robin Boyd critiques this example of 'typical Australian suburbia'.
