Guided tour of State Significant Fossil Beach Mornington
This State Significant Fossil Beach precinct's importance includes Victoria's first cement works as well as other scientific and cultural interest.
In the 1960s, an archaeological excavation occurred over about two years to explore this cement manufacturing by James Moller Robertson in 1862-63.
Families of the archaeologists from the 1960s excavation have retained a strong interest in this State Significant site. They attended most weekends to assist Professors Culican and Taylor in exploring the cement works that are still present for visitors to interpret.
Stories and memoirs from these family members shall be shared on the guided tour.
In addition to sharing experiences by the Culican family, another guest Dorothy Johnson as distinguished Art historian will share site painting by Rosamund Scott (1874) and other artists.
