Daylesford & District Historical Society, in partnership with DJAARA Elder Uncle Rick Nelson and Council, is hosting an exhibition to showcase a set of portraits of Dja Dja Wurrung people photographed in 1866 at the Coranderrk Aboriginal Station. This is rare opportunity to reflect on the journey these First Nations people endured; from being forced off their land and waterways, left in government protectorates, until they were closed down and then in 1864, taken to Coranderrk and off Country. The photographs are generously made available by Uncle Rick Nelson.
