Touring Tea Tree Gully

Have you ever looked at some of the old buildings in the Tea Tree Gully area and wondered about their history? Or maybe you’ve heard of some of the local pioneers from the 19th century and wanted to know more about their lives.

The Library has two Historic Bus Tours coming up that are a must for history enthusiasts. The first one will be Time Travelling in Tea Tree Gully, on Monday 24th May from 9:30am-2:30pm. It is a ‘history mystery’ tour, so as well as learning about the historical significance of the area you can collect clues and solve some mysteries along the way.

We will then have A Grave Matter – Golden Grove, Hope Valley and Houghton cemeteries. This exciting cemetery tour will be on Saturday 29th May from 10:00am-2:00pm. Come along and learn about the lives of some of those who are interred at our local cemeteries.

As with all our bus tours, a home-cooked lunch at the Old Highercombe Hotel Folk Museum is included in the cost of $25.00 per person. Bookings can be made by phoning 8397 7333.
