Creswick Campus Historical Collection

The Creswick Campus Historical Collection contains an estimated 12,000 objects, documents and photographs relating to the more than one hundred years of forestry education at the University of Melbourne's Creswick campus. The collection recounts the personal and professional histories of those who have studied, worked and lived at the forestry school.

Our catalogue is now available at Victorian Collections.

A showcase of some our collection can also be viewed at our Omeka site.

Notable items include numerous examples of staff and student work, photographs, and several natural history collections. A substantial school herbarium contains specimens collected by former staff and students as well as esteemed scientists including Baron Ferdinand von Mueller.

Some items from the collection may be viewed online, including the 1939 bushfire Royal Commission transcripts and our display of glass slides.
