June walk for members: The Bridging of Hunters Hill

Source: DMR Journal , 1964

Led by Karen Presland, this walk explores the history behind Hunters Hill’s three bridges:  Gladesville, Figtree and Tarban.  We’ll hear about the first bridge crossing which opened for traffic in 1881 through to the impacts caused by the 1964 build, plus stories around the “missing 100+ houses”  including St Malo, Mary Reiby’s cottage, Figtree Chapel and homes at Huntley’s Point.

The walk will be mainly on paved surfaces and go through a small amount of bushland and over a footbridge.

When:  at 9.30am Sunday 25th June

Where:  park in Joubert St North, and meet, opposite the Hunters Hill Hotel

Bookings: members@huntershilltrust.org.au for more info.

HHT’s Guided walks are FREE.  They are intended for Trust members but friends, family and new members are also welcome.
