Event description

Description

Join us as we time - travel through the evolution of Australian medicine, from colonial times - when the convict hospital caused more illness than it cured - to the cutting - edge treatments of today.

Discover how advances in scientific and medical knowledge have influenced the treatment of patients and their ailments since pre- settlement, and the early days of the colony, through to the current time. Along the way there were some decidedly odd developments!

This walking tour will visit Aboriginal lands, along with the sites of the Colonial Hospitals, Estella Private (Maternity) Hospital, the George Street and Macquarie Street Asylums and the Parramatta District Hospital.

Please arrive 15 minutes prior to the start time, for registration. Wear comfortable shoes. Bring water,snack and a hat. This activity is suitable for adults.
