Explore the Life of Caroline Newcomb

Celebrate the Australian Heritage Festival and join us and the Bellarine Historical Society to learn about the fascinating life of Caroline Newcomb, the woman the suburb was named to honour in 1956. Caroline was born in London, travelled to Port Phillip as governess to John Batman's children, and along with her partner Ann Drysdale, established the 'Boronggoop' and 'Coriyule' runs on the Bellarine Peninsula.
