Come on a guided tour of stunning depictions of Melbourne's golden age: when Victoria became a separate colony, gold was discovered, bushrangers roamed and explorers launched bold expeditions into the Australian interior. 

The work of William Strutt (1825-1915) in Heroes and villains: Strutt's Australia encompasses the brutal fury of the Australian landscape and the human drama of life in the mid-19th century.

Tours run at 12.30pm every Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday, except for public holidays.
