Extensive work has recently been done to restore the 1874 former Dunach School building, which is now part of Talbot Museum. This is almost finished and Talbot Arts & Historical Museum is planning a celebration and re-opening event for the morning of Saturday 4th March 2023, with the Museum to be open all day. We're particularly hoping to welcome people with personal or family ties to the building during its different phases of life - as the Dunach school but also serving that area as a local hall and church, as "Dunach" at Maryborough High School where it served as a stand-alone classroom, as part of the Talbot annexe of Maryborough Knitting Mill and also its more recent roles in the town and the museum. We're asking people to bring any related memorabilia with them on the day.

Eltham South Farms Walking Tour

March 4 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

For the Eltham District Historical Society's excursion on Saturday 4th March they intend to walk around the area that was the earlier location of the Eltham South Farms, which is now parkland and residential subdivisions. It will include views of the Diamond Creek valley from Porter Street, the parkland known as Barak Bushland and a traverse of the perimeter of the former Fabbro farm land in Bell Street. They will discuss the former farmers such as the Falkiners, Wests, Fabbros and Bollas and note the locations of their houses. Maurie Fabbro was the last of the family members to use their land for market garden purposes. Some people may remember him in the fields tending his rows of artichokes and other plantings.
