Harrietville

 

 Victoria, Australia

 

Harrietville is a small town with access to the Mt Hotham ski fields and a number of excellent bushwalking tracks. Located 332 km north-east of Melbourne, Harrietville is a former goldmining town settled in 1852 by goldminers, it became a resting place for those en route to the Omeo, Dargo and Glen Wills goldfields. Reef mining commenced in the area in 1861 as alluvial gold became scarce. At one point, 348 reefs were officially registered. Dredging began in the 1890s as the reefs became uneconomical. Dredge buckets filled with flowers can still be seen in the area. Small miners' cottages remain and are still occupied today.

The Voyage that Shook the World retraces Darwin’s journey, exploring the places and discoveries crucial to the formulation of his Theory of Evolution. Filmed in South America, UK, North America, Australia and Europe, The Voyage features dramatic period recreations and stunning nature cinematography interwoven with scholars sharing their perspectives on the man and the controversy. A fascinating and thought-provoking opportunity to gain new insight into The Voyage that Shook the World.

"God, who at various times and in various ways spoke in time past to the fathers by the prophets,

has in these last days spoken to us by His Son*, whom He has appointed heir of all things,

through whom also He made the worlds; who being the brightness of His glory and the express

image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself

purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high."

( * Jesus )   Letter to the Hebrews  ch.1  vs.1-3.   The Holy Bible - New King James Version
