9780980381368: Place for a Village, The: How Nature Has Shaped the City of Melbourne

From the beginning of its development Melbourne has always grown disproportionately to the east and south-east. Why was the settlement located up the river? Why does the city have the shape it does? Both the choice of site for initial settlement and the subsequent spread of residential and industrial areas were closely related to specific characteristics of those environments. Knowledge of those attributes provides the clues to an understanding of the history of Melbourne's growth.
