GSV members Flagstaff Gardens History Tour and Lunch
September 22 @ 10:30 am - 2:00 pm$25.00 – $35.00
Genealogical Society of Victoria members-only Flagstaff Gardens History Tour and Lunch
The Genealogical Society of Victoria is organising two guided walking tours of historic Flagstaff gardens. Each walk will begin and end at the RHSV’s home in the Drill Hall, opposite Flagstaff Gardens at 239 A’Beckett Street, Melbourne. There are two walks and you can opt to either
- walk at 10:30am, followed by lunch from 12 until 1pm or
- have lunch first from 12 until 1pm, followed by a walk from 1pm until 2pm.
The walking tour will climb Flagstaff Hill to consider its place in Melbourne’s topography and pre-European history as well as its early role as a burial ground, flagstaff signalling station and magnetic and meterological observatory. An absolute “must do” walk for understanding the history and character of Melbourne city.
GSV members are more than welcome to spend the day at the RHSV using the GSV collection or the RHSV collection (if you are interested in doing research we suggest that you contact Jillian Hiscock, our Collections Manager on firstname.lastname@example.org beforehand so that she can have your material ready for you).
GSV members will also be able to enjoy the current free exhibition, Kaleidoscope, which celebrates the splendid women who have helped shape the RHSV over its long 113 year history.
Please record any dietary restrictions when you book your tickets.
