Neighbourhood History Walk: Flemington

Take a walk with us into the history of Flemington. Led by library staff, join us as we explore Flemington -- big and small. Admire local buildings, learn about past residents, and hear quirky local anecdotes.

We’ve all heard about the “race that stops the nation”. But did you know that Flemington also hosts Barry Humphries favourite building? Or that in 1896 a Robert Ovens was charged at the Flemington Court House for his light-weight loaves? Join us for a relaxed, social walk exploring Flemington’s history, and get to know the people, places, and events that have shaped the suburb.

We will leave from the Flemington Library, with the walk taking approximately one hour.

Please dress for an outdoor walk, with sun protection, water, and appropriate footwear. The walk will be rescheduled in the case of inclement weather. Assistance animals only. Bookings required.
