Mark Beasley

Biography

Mark Beasley, as Manager of the Geelong Heritage Centre Collection and Services, touches and interacts with the recorded history and heritage of the Geelong and wider Barwon Region nearly every day, something he cherishes given his passion for all things historical.

Mark has undertaken research for and appeared in several Australian and International television programs, including Who Do You Think You Are Australia (SBS), Can We Help You (ABC TV) and Tony Robinson’s Time Walks.

Mark has researched and co-published several works about the history of the local community football club where he once played, a club that had its beginnings dating back to the mid 1880’s. Mark also plans to one day soon publish a work based on his ongoing research into what he believes, is a fascinating locally connected story, involving an early 19th century running of the greatest horse race in Australia—The Melbourne Cup.
