About this event

We know we have around 1500 First World War soldiers and nurses buried or commemorated in Ballarat’s Old and New Cemeteries, each one of them with an individual story. Author of our book “They Answered Their Country’s Call’, Garry Snowden, will lead a walking tour to a selection of these graves and tell the associated stories.

A not-to-be-missed tour as part of the Ballarat Cemeteries Picnic Day, and the Heritage Festival!
