  Lachlan Macquarie, the father of Australia As fathers across the nation are woken at some ungodly hour this Sunday by over-excited children bearing gifts of XXXX Gold, car wax and novelty barbecue aprons, they must, at least for a moment, ask themselves if the whole fatherhood caper is really worth it. Under the enlightened governorship of Lachlan Macquarie (–21), Sydney developed from a precarious penal settlement into a thriving, respectable town. Macquarie also began a program of public works, including the building of churches, hospitals, barracks, schools, and courthouses, and laid out several parks in and around the city. Lachlan Macquarie is widely considered by scholars to have disseminated the ideas of the Scottish Enlightenment in Australia. This was a particularly influential body of thought on notions of civilization and racial difference in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The story of Lachlan Macquarie is an important story in the history of modern Australia that has been largely lost to the current generation of school children. Whilst we’ve all seen many things named after Macquarie, few realise the important role he played in the Australia we know today.
