Victoria’s History Week Is Back For 2016

victoria history week 2016

VICTORIA | How well do you know Victoria’s history? Have you ever wondered where the colonial boys you learned about in school actually ended up? Did you know it’s been 60 years since the Melbourne Olympics?

From the Royal Historical Society of Victoria comes History Week, possibly the best chance you’ll ever have to brush up on Victoria’s history, without admitting how little of it you know, or merely satisfying your curiosity without a semi-accurate wikipedia article.

There’s a full calendar of activities including things such as learning about the pioneers of the Yarra Valley, hearing the customs and languages of Victoria’s first people, and exploring the rich history of the Great Ocean Road area. Events range from free to affordable, and we think there is something in there for even the least history-minded person.

History Week runs from the October 16-23, 2016 throughout the entire state of Victoria. For more details on how you can plan your journey, visit:

Paul founded The City Lane back in 2009 as a place to share photos of his travels around Europe with friends and family. The City Lane might have changed quite a lot since those early days but one thing that’s remained constant is Paul’s passion for food, travel and culture, and a desire to photograph and write about his experiences. Paul has a strong inquisitive nature that drives him to look beneath the surface in order to discover what really makes a city and its people tick, and what better way to do this than over a good meal or drink, with a city’s locals, at places that people who live in that city actually frequent. Paul is also a co-host of The Brunswick Beer Collective, a podcast that may or may not actually be about beer.
