Visitors will be able to learn all about Charles Joseph La Trobe, Victoria's first Governor and hear some fascinating stories from the family's letters about their life in early Melbourne in this tour of La Trobe's Cottage. The family lived in this elegantly furnished cottage surrounded by a beautiful garden for nearly 15 years. During this time, Melbourne grew from a settlement of fewer than 3,000 people to the centre of a thriving Colony of 237,000 people.
From the city: take Tram No. 8 to Stop 22 on Domain Road, just after Dallas Brooks Drive.
