Vic Branch: Christmas Walk and Talk

10 December 2019 @ 6:00 pm AEDT

Join us to celebrate the end of the year with well know horticulturalist and tree specialist, John Hawker, for a walk around historic Caulfield Park. Gazetted as a permanent public reserve in 1879 it is hard to imagine this site was once a string of swamps on the eastern side of the ridge which forms Dandenong Road. Whilst sport and recreational uses have been a large part of the history of the park, it has also been admired for its horticulture and tree collection. It retains many heritage features including a rose garden, elm avenue, rotunda, conservatory, bandstand, cenotaph, bronze statues and arboretum which we will explore on this walk. We hope you can join us.

6pm for 6.30pm start.
Veue: Meet in the Plaza at corner of Balaclava and Hawthorn Roads Caulfield.
Free event: Bring your family and friends and a picnic tea plus some coins for our traditional Christmas raffle.
