Next evening the blacks of the district mustered to give an exhibition of a corroboree, and for the last time the streets of Melbourne were lit up to the leaping flame of their weird fires. Also - On 4 April when Lady Jane Franklin, the wife of the Governor of Van Diemen’s Land, visited Melbourne, she requested to see a corroboree, and Robinson asked the Woiwurrung and Boonwurrung to arrange one (Robinson Jnl 4/4/1839). This was staged at the Aboriginal encampment on the southbank of the Yarra River, one mile from the township.

About a week ago from 09/02/1857 an immense congregation of blacks held a corroboree which was well attended by the white population. The gentlemen in black have repeated the piece nightly to the infinite amusement of their white brethren and to their own profit.

Description

When Queenscliff because a summer resort the blacks used to entertain the visitors, in day by throwing their spears, and boomerangs, and in the evenings by what they called a corroberry [sic.] which was held in the reserve at the south end of Learmonth St. The corroborree consisted of native songs, and dances. They would dress themselves up with boughs from the wattle trees placed round their legs, and arms, when dancing these anklets &c. would give out a rustling noise that was pleasing to them. They would paint all the bare parts of body, with whiting, and yellow ochre, chests, arms, and faces, and make a large fire, the men would stand round it, and sing, and dance, whilst the lubras would sit round with their β€˜possum skins doubled up in a fashion that when struck with the hand it resembled a kind of drum, and they kept excellent time to the other performers. Some of the gentlemen visitors would give the king of the tribe a past cast off dress suit of clothes namely a swallow tail coat and belltopper hat, and after the performers had sung, and danced the king would go round collecting, with the hat, this being the only evening entertainment we had in those days, they were very liberally supported.

Description

We saw the greatest number on Sunday, and their notions of Sabbath observance seemed rather Parisian than English. All seemed to be in a happy mood, laughing, singing, and even dancing. One sat on the summit of one of the highest hills chanting his corroboree, and beating time with sticks. At a distance were two going through some peculiar terpsichorean performances. Others met us as they were indulging in melodies of a somewhat monotonous character. Of one vocalist we begged a translation of the ditty he had been warbling; but after hesitating some time, he expressed it in his opinion that it was impossible for the aborigines and Europeans to make themselves mutually intelligible in poetry.

Well, to begin with, there was a grand corroboree on both sides, followed by what they, perhaps, would call a consultation of chief warriors, but which, in reality, was nothing more or less than a yabbering of the whole community of about 500 niggers, men, women, and children all appearing to have something particular to impart, and all talking at the same time, as if life depended upon their having first say.

The only amusement we had up to 1851 was the natives used to meet once a month on the full moon in Fawkner Park, opposite the Fawkner Hotel. The hotel lies between the Park and Millswyn-street, but there was no hotel, park or streets there then, but all bush. There the blacks held their corroboree, and I have seen the greater portion of the people of Melbourne and Prahran turn out and visit the camp on those occasions.
