THE GO-BETWEEN: William Murrungurk Buckley

 

Through the amazing story of escaped convict William Buckley (1780–1856) this show tells the story of the first attempted white settlement on Port Phillip (1803), of the Wathaurong people of the Geelong with whom Buckley lived for 32 years as Murrungurk, and then of Melbourne’s beginning—where Buckley became the go-between, dealing with John Batman and his attempts to buy the land off the Wurundjeri people and the other colonists such as John Fawkner.

LONSDALE HOUSE, QUEENSCLIFF PRIMARY SCHOOL & QUEENSCLIFF KINDERGARTEN

 

The children are all in for a huge treat when award-winning children’s novelist and illustrator, Martine Murray comes to visit as a part of the Queenscliffe Literary Festival 2020.

 

Martine will focus on introducing students to some of her age-appropriate picture story books. She will read, illustrate and about how the books and characters were developed and then do a creative drawing activity. This session is aimed at encouraging children to read, write and draw.
