Poems on the Underground was launched in 1986. The programme was the idea of American writer Judith Chernaik, who wanted to bring poetry to a wider audience. Poems are displayed on posters in 3,000 advertising spaces in train carriages across London, and are usually changed three times a year.

With Australian Federation celebrations in London space was set aside to feature Australian work.
