Foster & District Historical Society Inc. presents:

Road to the Prom

March 2016 – January 2017

The impact of opening up Yanakie Run for Soldier Settlement and later, Land Settlement, during the 1950s and 1960s is captured in this new exhibition at the Foster and District Museum. Transformation of the coastal and swampy landscape into successful dairy farms also forged a strong close-knit community of families who pioneered the settlement.

At the same time, cars opened up new possibilities for travel and tourism to Wilsons Promontory, bringing thousands of people along the road to the national park.

This exhibition explores these narratives of change in rural Victoria in the prosperous post-war era.
