    Public

    Australia has competed at every Olympic Games of the modern era. From the first modern Olympic Games held in Athens in 1896, through the 1956 Melbourne Olympics and perhaps our greatest collective expression of Australia's passion for sport, the Sydney 2000 Olympics, Australia's involvement in the Olympic Games bears few equals.

    Follow the Olympic Games theme to see how Australia's passion for sport is expressed through music. Curated by National Library of Australia staff.
