In this Elluminate session discover the Burke and Wills Environmental Expedition, and learn about the rich educational resources in the Culture Victoria website.


Tour beautiful records from the 1860 expedition. Gain additional insight into these records through the fascinating contemporary material being produced by members of the re-enactment expedition, which includes historian Dr Jonathan King, award winning cinematographer Michael Dillon, and artist Ben Beeton.


Presenters are Eleanor Whitworth, a writer and Content Curator for the Culture Victoria website, and Jo Clyne, an experienced teacher currently working as a History Education consultant with the History Teachers Association of Victoria.
