Lower Plenty River Red Gum Walk

Join Eltham District Historical Society members on their next local heritage walk

The predominant feature of this walk in the Bonds Road area, Lower Plenty is the large number of magnificent old River Red Gums that line the route. The walk also includes parts of the historic Cleveland Estate and Henry Stooke’s “Rosehill” homestead as described in the separate historical article in this Newsletter. From the southern part of Cleveland Avenue there are extensive views across and along the Yarra Valley.

This walk will start at 2pm on Saturday 5th November at the corner of Bonds Road and Stawell Road (Melway Ref. 33 B1). It is about 3 km. in length and will take about two hours. Parking is available in Montpelier Drive.

This free walk is open to Society members and the general public. The phone number for contact on the day is 0409 021 063.
