On this day in 1835, the schooner Enterprize landed its party of European settlers organised by (but not including) John Fawkner to commence the settlement to be later known a Melbourne. Over time this date has been celebrated as "Enterprize Day'. In recent times it has been re-badged and re-marketed as 'Melbourne Day'. although White Hat is not sure that John Batman would be particularly happy with that name and date.
