Malmsbury’s Bluestone Industrial Heritage walking tour

Take a history tour with Malmsbury Historical Society.
128 Mollison St, Malmsbury VIC 3446, Australia

Malmsbury bluestone has been used since 1856. After the Malmsbury Viaduct was finished in 1861 and the Bendigo railway completed in 1862, the stone was used across Victoria, then into NSW, SA, WA, TAS, and New Zealand. A bluestone sawing factory was established in Malmsbury in 1874. Take a history tour with Malmsbury Historical Society to discover the key dates and places which enabled Malmsbury bluestone to be exported, and understand why the stone is now recognised internationally as a Global Heritage Stone Resource.

These history tours are popular and have a limit of 20 people per walk, so bookings are essential.
