Summary/Abstract: This article deals with articles and releases regarding Serbia published in Australian newspapers from 1809 to 1882. During more than seven decades Serbia was frequently mentioned in the Australian press. This study analyses the development of the image of Serbia and the Serbs in a distant part of the British Empire, all influences from British, Austrian and French press and policies, and especially the impact of cultural emancipation and integration of Serbia into the broader European framework. In more than five thousand articles published in tens of contemporary Australian papers perception of the Serbian state and people is presented from the period of First Serbian Uprising until the proclamation of the Kingdom of Serbia.
