Australia Will Be There: Victorians in the First World War (1914-1919)
Portland Arts Centre 9 April – 20 May 2018

Through historical photographs and personal stories, this exhibition will present the chronology of the First World War (1914-19) and provide the opportunity to discover the fascinating stories with particular reference to the contribution of Victorians.

Find out about the hardships that our men and women endured and the battles that they fought alongside Allied nations – from the landings at Gallipoli to the battles in Palestine, Passchendaele and Fromelles.

Away from the frontline, discover the experiences of the people in Victoria, and their contribution to the war effort and growing social divisions which climaxed in the bitterly contested, and unsuccessful conscription referenda in 1916 and 1917.
