Other information

These walks involve a variety of perspectives – Melbourne’s history, heritage, architecture and social and economic development as seen in the built environment. In general, we walk around a selected area and stop at particular sites for an explanation and then invite questions.

Each of the walks takes about 2 to 2.5 hours around inner Melbourne.  Participants will be sent a set of notes with a route map in the week before the walk, as well as a note on where to meet (and how to get to the meeting spot).

At the conclusion of each walk we usually go for lunch or coffee to recover – for those who have time. Note that while the walks are not necessarily a long distance, you will be on your feet for over two hours.

REQUIREMENTS: No requirements, except that participants need to be able to walk /amble on and off for 2.5hrs. It is very useful (but not absolutely necessary) to have email and a mobile phone. Emailed notes are free; otherwise, there is a once-off $5.00 fee if printed copies are requested

TUTOR: Max is a former lecturer and researcher in Planning and Urban Studies at several Melbourne universities (RMIT, Victoria, and others). He has a particular interest in the historic development and evolution of the urban landscape

How to Enrol

On-line: after bookings have opened

On-line enrolments are preferred as this significantly reduces the amount of back-office work for our volunteers.

  • Login to the U3APP.org.au website.
  • Go to the Courses & Enrolling page.
  • Scroll down to find the course that you are interested in.
  • Does the course have spaces available?
    • Click on the course name to go to the booking page.
    • Click on “Book for this course or event”.
    • You will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.
  • OR is the course shown as FULL?
    • Click on WAITLIST.

Paper Enrolment Form: before bookings open for First Semester

  • Obtain a paper Enrolment Form either from the Office or by printing an online copy available here.
  • Complete the paper Enrolment Form and submit it to the Office.

The start date for acceptance of paper Enrolment Forms for first semester is published on the U3APP website and in the e-Bulletin. Enrolment Forms received before this date are treated as though they had been received on the start date (ie there is no advantage to be gained by submitting early). On the start date and thereafter, paper Enrolment Forms are numbered in order of receipt.  Paper Enrolment forms are processed by U3APP volunteers on the same day as on-line bookings.

If your enrolment is successful, you will receive a confirmation email.  Please check your Junk/Spam folders as these automatically-generated emails often finish up there.

If your enrolment is unsuccessful,  you will receive an email telling you that you have been waitlisted.
