1835-The Founding of Melbourne and the Conquest of Australia

St Kilda Town Hall, 99a Carlisle Street, St Kilda. Victoria

An afternoon featuring well known Tasmanian author, James Boyce, and popular singer songwriter Shane Howard. The history of white settlement has never been popular amongst non-indigenous Australians. Much easier to forget. The remarkable history of the founding of Melbourne and settlement of Victoria is no exception. These stories must be told if we are ever to achieve reconciliation and some healing of the damage done to the first Australians.
