Welcome to the Rowville Lysterfield History Project

Rowville and Lysterfield are not just new suburbs that have recently appeared on Melbourne's eastern rim.

No! They are, in fact, places that can trace their histories right back to the earliest years of the settlement in Melbourne.

And what fascinating histories they are!

You will be well rewarded when you spend some time exploring the stories and the photographs of the Rowville-Lysterfield History Project.
