Event description

Description

Ever wondered how East Melbourne has retained so much of its heritage character? Join us for a walk around the streets of this beautifully preserved enclave and hear how a small group of residents fighting to save the elm trees from removal in 1953, established what is believed to be the first residents' association in Melbourne, the East Melbourne Group. Historian Jenny Brown will host this walk.

Bookings essential, no walk-ins.
