These five walks will involve a variety of perspectives: Melbourne’s history,
heritage, architecture and social and economic development as seen in the
built environment. In general, we will walk around a selected area and stop
at particular sites for explanations and then invite questions.
Each of the walks will take about 2 to 2½ hours around inner Melbourne:
South Fitzroy, East Melbourne, St Kilda, Albert Park and Middle Park. You
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 can go for lunch or coffee to recover – for
those who have time.
NOTE: While the walks are not necessarily a long distance, you will be on
your feet for over two hours, so you do need a reasonable degree of
stamina (and “sensible shoes”!).
REQUIREMENTS: No requirements, except that participants need to be able
to walk/amble for up to 2½ hrs. It is very useful (but not absolutely
necessary) to have email and a mobile phone – email for posting the notes
(otherwise there is a once-off $5 fee for Max to print them and give them to
you on the day), and mobile phone to contact you if the weather causes
cancellation, you get lost getting there etc.
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
