Map of the province of Victoria, by John Arrowsmith, 1858
The digitised issues of the Victorian Historical Journal give you access to a wealth of academic articles on many aspects of Victorian history.
First published in 1911 and still in print today, this official publication of the Royal Historical Society of Victoria contains commentary on major issues such as Aboriginal heritage and the progress of European settlement.
It features articles on all sorts of unique events, including the first plane crossing of Bass Strait, the introduction of a hippopotamus to the Melbourne Zoo, and the employment of Victoria's first mailman.
There are also photographs, book reviews, illustrations, maps and obituaries.
Our digitised collection of the journal will span from 1911 to 1954, when the publication was known as the Victorian Historical Magazine. While not all the issues from this period are available yet, we are continuously adding newly-digitised editions.
