Physics education research has grown within an Australian community which has at its heart a passion for helping students learn better. In this article we describe the discipline and attempt to capture some of the key moments that contributed to the development of this research field in Australia. The article deals almost entirely with tertiary physics education. While many have been on journeys exploring a wide landscape, space permits only a few individuals and landmarks to be mentioned.
