Monbulk – Living in the Dandenongs

Takes you back to the first explorers describing their Aboriginal guides. You’ll encounter botanists, timber men, surveyors and gold diggers battling through impenetrable wilderness. In the 1890s, families seek a living on ten-acre survival blocks with no facilities. These courageous people have stories to tell of fire and flood, death and disaster. If you love the Dandenongs, this book will add an appreciation of the past and add substance to the Monbulk of today.
