The Industrial Revolution was a period when new sources of energy, such as coal and steam, were used to power new machines designed to reduce human labour and increase production. The move to a more industrial society would forever change the face of labour, society and technology.
This Industrial Revolution changed global commerce and exploration enabling the British settlement of Melbourne in 1835.
Our school tour explores the impact on Melbourne landscapes of the Industrial Revolution including the settlers, Indigenous people, technologies, land use, geography, buildings and the challenges of the future.
