Eugene von Guérard Ferntree Gully in the Dandenong Ranges 1857

Early painters like Eugene von Guerard recorded Australian landscapes before they were changed by land clearing caused by European settlement. Depending on their painting style, their work can provide a valuable look back in time. We can identify plants and animals that were in the area and the unchanged landscape.
