Geelong’s 20th Century self-guided heritage walking package
15 May @ 9:00 am - 15 September @ 5:00 pm| $8
Highlights of Geelong’s 20th Century Architecture in Australia’s only UNESCO City of Design.
Exercise minds and bodies with a 20th Century Walking Tour Package developed by the Geelong and Region Branch of the National Trust (GRBNT).
This Walk was intended to be a guided walk held during Design Week, cancelled due to COVID-19. However armed with the booklet showing some of the City’s 20th Century highlights, and with a set of walking guidelines, you can now choose your own time to set off from the Bandstand in Johnstone Park. The walk takes 1 1/2 to 2 hours.
The 20th Century Walk package ($8 including postage) includes
- the pocket-sized booklet Some Highlights of Geelong’s 20th Century Architecture;
- directions for the CBD Walking Tour around the significant 20th Century buildings highlighted in the booklet; and
- a bonus list of interesting 20th Century domestic, commercial and industrial buildings to see in suburban Geelong outside the CBD (walk or drive).
Your Walking Tour of CBD architectural highlights (about 1 1/2 to 2 hours) begins and ends at the Hitchcock Memorial Bandstand, Johnstone Park, in Gheringhap St., Geelong.
Then, after being immersed in ‘seeing’ the CBD series of 20th Century buildings, use the list of interesting places to guide your explorations of last century’s developments in suburban Geelong.
Choose your own time to do either tour.
