Join us on a trip down memory lane

THIS week the Dandenong Journal celebrates its 150th anniversary.
The Journal is the sister paper of the Journal News and historically covered the suburbs of Doveton, Hallam, Endeavour Hills and Eumemmering.
Last October Star News Group launched the Journal News to give readers a newspaper dedicated specifically to these suburbs, while also covering the best of Casey and Greater Dandenong.
We thought Journal News readers would enjoy a trip down memory lane as the Journal marks a very special milestone.
The paper was launched in 1865 as the South Bourke and Mornington Journal and has been continuously published ever since, making it one of the oldest newspapers in Victoria.
This special sesquicentenary celebration doesn’t finish with this paper.
There is also a window display to enjoy at the new Dandenong Library and a short film which features Dandenong identities sharing their thoughts and memories of the Journal.
The film will be shown throughout August on the big screen in Harmony Square and can be viewed on the Journal website.
