Eltham mudbrick tour
The annual Eltham Mudbrick Tour held each October is on again for 2014. This project raises funding for the Eltham High School Music program.
This year’s tour will include Alistair Knox’s own home in King Street, and the home of Tim and Betty Burstall which was built not long after WW2. It also includes another couple of mudbrick homes in the vicinity of the Burstalls’ home that were built around the same time. One of them belongs to writer Morag Fraser and philosopher Frank Jackson. This one has an extraordinary extension designed by Macgregor Knox.
Sunday 19th October 10.00 am – 4.00 pm
A regular shuttle service will operate from Montsalvat 7 Hillcrest Avenue, Eltham throughout the day.
