Paintings of Early Melbourne

This display showcases rare and little known paintings of Melbourne from the 1840s to the 1870s. Drawn from the private collection of the Roy Morgan Research Centre Collection, these paintings, watercolours and lithographs show a Melbourne before high-rise buildings, a swamp city through to the wealth of the gold rush.

They provide an insider’s glimpse of the early beginnings of colonial Melbourne and offers an insight into the life of Melbournians.

Included in this exciting tour is the historic Executive Council Chamber, the office of the Governor of Victoria, since 1862.
