Charles Grimes – Survey of Port Phillip

Board 11: Flemming’s Journal

The Flemmings Journal, the diary kept during this exploration of Port Phillip is not a well known document, except by a few dedicated Grimes advocates and supporters in the history world. And to date the journal has not been that accessible.

This version of Flemming’s Journal was produced by the Footscray Historical Society in the 1980’s. It has since been digitised by Melbourne’s Living Museum and with the permission of the Footscray Historical Society and is available for download on this website.

This document should be read by every student of history or for that matter every Victorian who has some curiosity about what things looked like before the Europeans changed everything.
