A Wonderful Heritage Festival

The Walking Group

We have had a brilliant Heritage Festival for 2014 with three walking tours two author talks and two exhibitions with over 700 visitors to events. Jason Chatwin led a group of 30 on an engaging Historical walk around Bicentennial Park, The Crescent and Jubilee Park. Perfect Autumn weather and a journey from the early beginnings of Annandale, Sir John Young, the crescent and early industry to the later Industrial phase of Rozelle Bay with Timber yards and ship industry to the reclamation of the park after the very effective “Save Rozelle Bay Campaign” in the 1980s. With rich historical resources made available through TROVE our online catalogue WEBOPAC and Online resources some amazing historical information can be found. Keep posted for more walking Tours later on in the year.
