This Website is authored by Bob Padula, OAM, of Mont Albert, Victoria, Australia, and is a Pictorial History Research project.

It is a journey, through space and time, chronicling the history, heritage and evolution of the Dandenong Police Paddocks and the Churchill National Park, 30 km south east of Melbourne.

The Project includes many public-domain out-of-copyright images, copies of etchings and photographs (dating back to the 1830s), maps, audio/visual content, supplemented by recent on-site imagery taken by the author.

The textual content and articles describe the events and activities depicted in the photographs.

There are several Chapters devoted to the 7th Australian National Scout Jamboree held over nine days in the 1964-65 New Year Holiday period, attended by 16,000 scouts.

Please note that clicking any Image will display a full-size version!

Please let the author know what you think about this site - there is a neat little Guest Book elsewhere on this page for your comments and reactions, or you could Email the author direct!

The author hopes that you enjoy this wonderful journey!
