Balmain Association Spring Garden Walks 2018

THIS SATURDAY 10.00am to 4.00pm

This Saturday seven private gardens in Balmain East and Birchgrove will be open for inspection.

This is your opportunity to see behind the garden fence and enjoy a variety of beautiful private gardens – a large waterfront garden, a treasure of orchids and ferns, a secret garden with South American varieties of plants, a large formal garden, a large shady palm garden and a small terrace garden complete with bees. Each garden is entirely different and provides a wealth of ideas to take back to your own.

The gardens will be open from 10.00am to 4.00pm with last entry at 3.00pm.

For more information please contact Di Garder

Tickets available at the Watch House 179 Darling St Balmain and at Wyoming, 25 Wharf Rd Birchgrove on the day 9:30am to 2:00pm $15 for adults and children free. Please pay by cash

Heritage Festival 2013 Community Milestones

Programe Printout State Wide Heritage Festival Programme

Heritage Festival, 2010

2010’s Heritage Festival programme was a huge success with a great range of events held in our local area. The Balmain Association’s ferry tour on board the historic Radar of former industrial sites was a sell out and accompanied the Association’s exhibition Balmain Locals help to make our Nation at the Watch House on Darling Street .

In Leichhardt our walking tour ARCHITECTUS – held on a breezy Sunday morning- was well attanded with people coming from as far as Sutherland to discover some of Norton Street’s architectural highlights.

Former Leichhardt councillor Hall Greenland presented a stirring overview of the life of long-time local activist and Leichhardrt alderman Nick Origlass to a packed crowd at Balmain Town Hall meeting room. Our friends at Heritage Group of Leichhardt District, meanwhile, launched their eagerly awaited book Exploring Leichhardt Heritage at Leichhardt Library.
