Event description

Description

Plenty of walking tours focus on the history of Melbourne post European settlement, particularly the years from 1835, through the gold rush, and up to the boom era of the 1880s. This architour also tells that story, but from the perspective of the buildings, lanes and streets of the CBD. Some original architecture survives while elsewhere only memories remain, despite attempts to erase them. In some areas, thoughtful development has attempted to revive these memories, reminding us that the future of a site can also hold its past. Everything is open to discussion on this architour and differing opinions about heritage, conservation and change are encouraged.
