AUTUMN COLOURS - Gossip from the Bathurst Settlement, 1815-1840
Saturday 27 April
Join Dr Robin McLachlan on a gentle stroll through the settlement to hear tales about the men and women who once lived there. We will meet the settlement’s first mother, the gaoled convict who claimed discovery of the Inland Sea, the surgeon’s wife (with a shopping challenge) and many more, all with stories to tell. No buildings* remain to be seen from their time, but with a little imagination their voices can still be heard. The tour will begin in front of the Bathurst City Community Club on William Street and will involve a short walk down William Street to the Proclamation Cairn. (*Perhaps one building - and therein lies a story). Bookings essential.
