Fast Facts

  • In May 1835 John Batman ‘bought’ the land that would later become Melbourne from its traditional owners (the Aborigines of the Kulin Nation) for nothing more than a few tools, flour and clothing

  • To turn right at most city intersections you must pull into the left lane (or risk the wrath of honking Melburnian motorists or even a bloody great tram!)

  • The Edwardian baroque Melbourne City Baths were originally built to stop locals from washing themselves in the grotty Yarra River

  • Bushranger Ned Kelly breathed his last at the Old Melbourne Gaol, where his iconic armour and the gallows from which he hung are still displayed
