Abstract Australian research workers have made important contributions to tropical medicine and tropical public health. Recognised high points of international significance (for example, Joseph Bancroft and filariasis, 1876; Thomas Bancroft and dengue fever, 1906; Burnet and Australian X disease, 1934; Derrick and Q fever, 1937; and Fairley and malaria, 1947) must be seen in the context of much detailed work of national relevance by institutions and individuals. The directions of Australian research can be related to several major themes: the large extent of Australia that is tropical or subtropical; interactions with neighbouring countries, especially Papua New Guinea; and concern for the health of Australian Aborigines.
