The Place for a Village: How Nature Has Shaped the City of Melbourne
Have you ever wondered why Melbourne is located where it is? Or why it has the shape it does? The original point of settlement was about seven kilometres up the Yarra River from Port Phillip Bay. Urban development in the last 170 years has led to a metropolitan area that today stretches from Caroline Springs in the west to Ferntree Gully in the east, and from Broadmeadows in the north to Frankston in the south. What has led to this development?
Gary Presland will literally change your view of Melbourne.
