Abstract (in English)

The theories of physical determinism underlying the municipal and social reform movement in nineteenth Century Britain found fertile soil in Australia's burgeoning cities at the turn of the Century. By the nineteen twenties the British philosophy of "Garden Cities" had been propounded in all capital cities and provincial centres by touring British Town Planning Association experts and by Australian professionals returning from study tours to Europe and America.
