Women in Eltham Cemetery Tour

October 5 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

Stories connect us to our local heritage.

Nestled on high ground, once overlooking the village of Eltham, we will tour part of the cemetery and recognise the contributions of some local women to the Eltham district community and share stories of women now interred in these grounds.

From pioneer women to the first woman in Eltham to attend University, the silent film actress, and the community-spirited politician. From the Post Mistress to the World War One nurse.

Bookings are essential and places are limited.

This event is being hosted by Yarra Plenty Regional Library in partnership with Eltham District Historical Society and Eltham Cemetery Trust.

Eltham Cemetery, 40 Mt Pleasant Road, Eltham. Access car park via Metery Road.
