Arthur Streeton's birthplace will be revealed at the next meeting of the Mount Duneed History Group on Thursday 3 March at 7:30pm. New members welcome.
Noted Australian landscape painter Arthur Streeton (a leading member of the Heidelberg School) is reputed to have been born at Mount Duneed in 1867. Is this correct or was he born in the Parish of Duneed, which includes Mount Moriac? A monument erected in his memory is situated near the corner of Princes Highway and Ervines Road, Mount Moriac.
He was discharged as medically unfit early in World War I, and was later official artist with the Australian Imperial Force.
