At Melbourne Brick, we’ve been helping people turn their outdoor dreams into a dream outdoors for over 30 years.
Co-incidentally, a well known convict William Buckley spent about 30 years living with local aborigines near Melbourne after escaping in the early 1800’s.
The phrase ‘Buckley’s or none’ was thought to come from his chances at survival, yet he beat the odds and turned up in the 1830’s with a party of aboriginals and was granted a pardon soon after.
But did you know that before this William Buckley was also a bricklayer.
Seemed he loved bricks and the outdoor life as much as we do.
