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. A light lunch at the RHSV is also included in the ticket price. 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.
