This is a delightful opportunity to explore historical landmarks within the heritage precinct of Tea Tree Gully.  The choice of three different walks offers visitors the chance to learn, discover and appreciate times past.
Hear stories of village life including the butcher, baker and blacksmith.  Walk into Anstey Hill Recreation Park and encounter nature and stunning views while revealing history of the quarry and stone buildings.
All walks leave from designated areas and are led by well-informed guides keen to showcase the area. Each lasts about two hours return. Each is available on Saturday and Sunday.
Afterwards, Devonshire Tea is available and the Gift Shop is stocked with unique craft back at the Tea Tree Gully Heritage Museum.

Fee of $5 per person per walk includes guided walk and entry into the Museum on return.
The Museum, Gardens, Gift Shop and Tea Room will be open 1:00 - 4:00 pm on both days.
