Growth Progress and Community Spirit

Growth Progress and Community Spirit: a history of the Melton district  

Growth, Progress and Community Spirit traces the history of the Melton district from Dreamtime to today. Beginning with the formation of the land, it covers tens of thousands of years of habitation by First Nations people, the arrival of European settlers, and the incredible transformation from a small farming community to one of Australia's fastest growing cities.
This history explores the changes and challenges faced throughout this journey, and shows how the community has risen to meet them. Archival records and photographs are combined with the memories and reflections of locals to illuminate the past and pay homage to those who have shaped this thriving municipality, while also looking to the future. Growth, Progress and Community Spirit celebrates the Melton community, past and present, its diversity, unique character and vibrant spirit.
