Six of the best inventions from Aussie families

Families have long been the pioneers behind some of the world's most important and iconic inventions. Here are six of Australia's finest.

Whenever we think about inventors, we think of people like Thomas Edison or Leonardo da Vinci; lone geniuses who churned out world-changing ideas, one after another. But that’s not how 99.9 per cent of great ideas are born. Most great ideas happen because nothing in existence could get the job done, so people figured out a solution.

Not all of these inventions have come from a family business, but they all had (in some way or another) family members getting together and creating something entirely new.
