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
