Graham Thorley of the Heidelberg Historical Society will join us to reflect on the changing face of the Banyule municipality via its population, buildings, infrastructure, and ways of life.
Banyule’s rolling hills and valleys, vegetation and grasslands abound with colourful native birds and wildlife attracting pastoralists, investors and settlers.
Properties were established on a grand scale, including Joseph Hawdon’s “Banyule”, townships grew and new cultures were attracted. Within a short period of 35 years, the small village, first known as Warringal and later as Heidelberg, had grown from a few scattered houses into a flourishing community. Heidelberg became a Shire in 1871, then a City in 1934. The City of Banyule was established in 1994.
