The panorama of Melbourne from De Gruchy & Leigh. On display in 'Paintings of Early Melbourne', a paid tour of the Old Treasury Building.

In this guided tour, students will discover the history of Melbourne through contemporary images from the 1840s through 1880s. Drawn from the Roy Morgan Research Centre Collection, these paintings and lithographs provide a glimpse of colonial Melbourne, seen through the eyes of those who were there.

Students will learn and examine the history of the city from first European settlement, through to Federation, when Melbourne became the capital city of Australia. A visit to the Executive Council Chamber is included in this tour to see the Sir Francis Grant R.A. portrait of Charles La Trobe, our first Lieutenant-Governor.

This tour is catered for visual learners. Ideal for ESL students.
