Victorian Places

I’ve just come across the excellent Victorian Places website, which was produced by Monash University and the University of Queensland.

The site blurb says:

“This is a website containing the history of all the places in Victoria (Australia) that have now or once had a population over 200 at any time since the establishment of Victoria as a British colony.”

The entries I looked at were everything a genealogist hoping to be spoonfed basic contextual information about an ancestral place could desire. I think I’ll be making heavy use of the site.
