Summary

Location: Immigration Museum, Flinders St

This is one of few remaining public artworks commissioned for the Another View walking trail. Here a silhouetted figure and horseshoes commemorate the race won by an Aboriginal schoolboy, Peter, in 1876. The plaque was intentionally placed in contrast to the John Batman plaque, which commemorates his landing in 1835.
