Alive Outside: Prehistoric St Kilda

How much do you know about St Kilda's Prehistoric and Indigenous history? Here's a chance to travel back in time and discover incredible stories about our very own backyard. This session is completely free.

 

Are you a young person aged between 12 and 25 who live, work or play in the City of Port Phillip?

This completely free 2 hour session starts at the Ngargee tree, an important ceremonial tree for at least 400 years, and walks through the parkland to the foreshore at West Beach.

Along the journey, we discover more of the Boon Wurrung culture and lifestyle in the St Kilda area and the landscape that existed here hundreds of years ago.

Our palaeontologist, Ben Francischelli, will also unearth the life that existed along this coastline millions of years ago and bring along local fossil specimens to help us appreciate the incredible marine life of this area.

 

This event is part of the Alive Outside project provided in partnership with the City of Port Phillip.
