by Simon White and students from Western Port Secondary College (2017)

A mural depicting the maritime history of Western Port Bay. A selection of images from the collection of the Hastings & Western Port Historical Society was chosen to inspire the artists in the development of the design. The seven images tell the region’s fascinating narrative from 1860 to today.

John Coleman Statue, Hastings
Mornington Peninsula Street and Public Art

by Stephen Glassborow (2001)

Statue of great Essendon footballer and coach, John Coleman (23.11.1928 - 5.4.1973)

John Coleman was born in Port Fairy in 1928 and moved to Hastings in his early teens where he played local football for two years. In 1947, John Coleman first played football with Hastings. The 18 year old full forward kicked 137 goals and won the Best and Fairest in the Mornington Peninsula Football League. The following year he kicked 160 goals (averaging 10 goals per match) including 23 in a game against Sorrento.

He then became an Essendon legend as a goal kicker. The opening round on 1949 saw Coleman kick 12 goals for Essendon against Hawthorn. This was the beginning of a brilliant career which was terminated by a serious knee injury in 1954. Some years later Coleman returned to coach Essendon to two premierships in 1962 and 1965. Illness forced him to relinquish his position and he died at the early age of 44 years on 5 April 1973.

As the turn of the century drew to a close, John Coleman was named full forward in the AFL Team of the Century and he was also chosen as one of the 10 greatest in the AFL Hall of Fame.

The Coleman Medal, given to the AFL’s greatest goal kicker each year, is named in his honour.

The statue was based on a mark taken by John Coleman over his Fitzroy opponent Tom Meehan in a match during the 1953 season.

Telstra Exchange Building Local History Mural, Baxter
Mornington Peninsula Street and Public Art

by Melbourne’s Murals in collaboration with students from the Bayside Christian College (2018).

The mural was painted to celebrate 100 years since the town of Baxter was named. The mural depicts Benjamin Baxter who founded the town and also celebrates the town’s agricultural heritage. Baxter lived in a property named Carrup Carrup which still exists today, as well as the original cottage he and his wife Martha lived in.

An interesting side note is that the artists originally mistakenly painted an image of American civil war soldier Benjamin Baxter, instead of the original settler, Captain Benjamin Baxter. Thankfully the mistake was quickly discovered and painted over.

Baxter has had a colourful history and even had its own speedway where many highly regarded racing car drivers competed. Bike stunt rider Blake “Bilko” Williams who is part of Nitro Circus, is a former resident.
