As part of the National Trust Australian Heritage Festival in April, whose overall theme is ‘My Culture, My Story’, we are planning an exhibition of photographs and memorabilia to showcase and celebrate the diversity of cultures that have shaped our shared heritage on the Southern Mornington Peninsula.

At first count, we identified 14 different nationalities among past residents.
Do you have a relevant story to share about your family background?
We welcome contributions to this exhibition.

Alex gave us a terrific overview of the Trust’s work managing 300 heritage places including a volcano and Fern Gully in Red Hill. Advocacy work is a vital aspect of Trust efforts.

Alex’s special interest is Indigenous Heritage and she described the important research of the Boon wurrung currently being conducted on the Peninsula through McCrae family archives and Endeavour Fern Gully.
