Take your students on a virtual tour at a real colonial house and meet the people who lived there and examine their things!
Meet George at McCrae Homestead
Meet Nellie at La Trobe’s Cottage
Heritage At Your Touch invites students to use their classroom web browser to explore two early colonial sites, the McCrae Homestead (1845) and Governor La Trobe’s Cottage (1843). Teachers are encouraged to contact us about visiting the sites as an extension to the virtual experience.
For Victorian curriculum links, please see the table on the McCrae Education Program website. This virtual experience is also suitable for interstate schools and is aligned with themes of citizenship, contact history, early colonial Australia and materials design.
