We had a wander around the rest of the museum too. I should have made a note of what the birds are, but I was more interested in the shadows!
Since my last visit to the museum they have installed a new exhibit replicating a four room weatherboard cottage, originally built in 1858 in a rough area of Melbourne called Little Lon. It was home to three generations of the Hayes family, immigrants from Ireland.
and the weird and wonderful seed pod of Araujia hortorum, moth vine.
