This is the location of the beginnings of Melbourne.

The Enterprize Landing Memorial at the Enterprize Wharf.

In memory of those who landed here in August 1835 to begin the first settlement by Europeans, of the site that would become the city of Melbourne. The schooner Enterprize (Captain Peter Hunter) from Launceston, Tasmania, reached this stretch of the Yarra River on 29 August 1835. On the following day Sunday, 30 August 1835, the horses and deck cargo were unloaded. When the Enterprize returned to Launceston, the seven who remained were John Lancey, master mariner; George Evans, settler; Evan Evans, his servant; James Gilbert, Thomas Morgan and Charles Wise, servants of J P Fawkner, the owner of the schooner; and Mary Gilbert. Mary the only woman in the party, was James Gilbert's wife. She gave birth, on 29 December 1835, to a son, James, the first European child born in Melbourne.
