Point Henry the first point of arrival in Australia for many

The Port of Geelong was an alternate port to Melbourne during the gold rush era,especially for diggers going to the Ballarat goldfields. Most ships of more than 500 tons docked at Point Henry as they could not safely cross the bar in Corio Bay prior to the digging of the Hopetoun Channel.We are particularly interested in finding families who arrived in Geelong via Point Henry
