Step back into time and discover what life was like during the time of Alexander Balcombe in the mid 19th century and how did it differ from growing up as a boy in the 1950s? Hear from a panel of Briars' experts on what life was like through the centuries.

Discover what life on the Mornington Peninsula was like as a pioneer family long before Peninsula Link and Bentons Square. Who were the closest neighbours to The Briars and what chores were required among the youngest family members? How did life on the peninsula differ from the 19th century to the 20th century to today? Hear the answers to these questions and many more during a talk from first hand accounts and photographs at The Briars then stay to enjoy morning tea and conversation.
