For our next excursion on Saturday 2nd March 2019 we will spend some time revisiting Research.
It is well steeped in the history of the former Shire of Eltham and is an area that has experienced many changes over the years. Many of the older buildings no longer exist.
We will meet at 2.00pm at the Research Shopping Centre in Main Road (Melway ref 22 G2). The planned walk is about 3.5 km in length and will take about 2 hours, but can be shortened in the event of hot weather. Commentary will reference Andrew Lemon’s 1989 book ‘Return to Research’.
This excursion is free and is open to the general public as well as Society members.
Please note that dogs are not permitted on Society excursions.
The phone number for contact on the day is 0409 021 063.
