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: www.historyweek.org.au.
When: 16 – 23 October 2016
