Bridgetown History Walk
A guided History walk that delves into the history of early Bridgetown and the characters who lived here. At a special half price rate for the heritage festival.
The area now called Bridgetown was, long before white settlement, a meeting place for the Pibbulman, Wadandi and Kanayak peoples. The first graziers, orchardists, farmers and builders saw the richness and beauty of the land and developed industries that grew, slowly to begin with, then rapidly as transport links were developed. Growth needs investment and people.
The men and women who chose to live in Bridgetown were a diverse group from different backgrounds. How they coped, suffered, thrived and played to become a community is an absorbing story.
