Nillumbik: then and now

Congratualtions to local Eltham author Marguerite Marshall who recently published her new book Nillumbik: then and now.

This new lcoal history book takes the reader on a journey from when the Aboriginal people were this area’s sole inhabitants, to the present day. Nillumbik’s history told in this collection of 96 stories (each illustrated with a photograph) and nearly all based on sites, mirrors those of the wider Australian community. It encompasses tales of the Wurundjeri people, a former convict, farmers, a bushranger, gold-mining, soldiers, artists, intellectuals, environmentalists and sportspeople.
