Nerd out over architecture and the history of a bygone era filled with stories of intrigue, affluence and pride. On this walking tour we'll see the remnants of Fitzmaurice streets first “Australian Hotel” (est. 1856), visit a hidden beer cellar from the turn of the century, and we'll walk back in time to the early 1880's through the colonnades of the Old Commercial Bank and post Office Building. As is the Nerd Nite way, we'll finish up with a reminiscent beer at the Riverine Club, a building with rich social and economic history.
The tour is limited to 20 people. First come, first serve!
