150th Anniversary of VictoriaPrint Page
A flagpole commemorates the 150th anniversary of the foundation of the State of Victoria which was celebrated in 1984 and 1985.
Victoria's first successful British settlement was at Portland, on the west coast of what is now Victoria. Portland was settled on 19 November 1834 by the Henty family, who were originally farmers from Van Diemen's Land (Tasmania). Melbourne was founded in 1835 by John Batman. Victoria was officially created a separate colony in 1851, and achieved self government in 1855.
