Ever wondered where Melbourne's street names came from, who John Batman and John Pascoe Fawkner were or what is Hoddle’s chain?

Students will be guided through The changing face of Victoria exhibition to develop an understanding of the arrival of European settlers in Victoria and the Aboriginal people who preceded them.

Students will view artifacts from key events in Victoria’s history, including the gold rush and the life of Ned Kelly. They will also explore Melbourne’s modern identity and what has made the city unique.
