In February 2024 Malmsbury Bluestone was officially designated a Global Heritage Stone Resource. Since it was first used in 1856, many of the local uses of the stone have been lost due to demolition and neglect, while others have a bright future. Join Malmsbury Historical Society on a history tour  and learn about why Malmsbury bluestone is internationally recognised as being significant to human culture, what the stone was used for locally, how much of this has already been lost, and ponder how long the rest will survive without adequate protection.

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

Cost is $5 per person, payable only in cash on the day.

Email Malmsbury Historical Society on malmsburyhistorical@gmail.com or phone (03) 5423 9383 to make bookings.

The walk will be cancelled if raining heavily but will proceed under light drizzle.

The meeting place is on the corner of Mollison Street and Ellesmere Place, outside the Town Hall.  Free parking is available adjoining the town hall or adjoining streets.

Please wear weather-appropriate clothing and sturdy footwear, some rough ground will be covered.

Finish time is approximate, allowing for questions and discussion.
