“My Town / My Place – The History Around Me”.
October 1 - October 31Free
A month-long exploration on the Gippsland History group on facebook, looking at all the reasons to visit all the towns, site and places in the region. We are doing it virtually now, so that when the time comes, we are prepared to put our boots on the ground to see all the region can offer.
You might be talking about our rich Indigenous history, somewhere as well-known as Walhalla, or as little known as the remnants of an early road. It might be the magnificent goldfields experience of Omeo, or just a drive along the highway knowing that just across there, in a paddock, the first milking machine was used in the state. Maybe a reason to spend time in Bairnsdale, imagining it as the centre of large river and lake steamers to rival the Murray-Darling?
If you do not live here – what is it that you want to share with others, that you know is there? That they may not. Maybe an alpine goldfield you so want to visit?
Tell us the History of Your Town / Your Place.
History in Gippsland has it all.
