This event is a repeat of the very popular "Early Houses of St Kilda" walking tour led by Phillip Stewart in February 2016. Phillip will share his considerable knowledge and expertise about many of the early homes of St Kilda dating from 1843 to 1860 as he leads us through Acland, Robe, and Dalgety Streets. Phillip will also take us inside three of these homes - including the stately 'Oberwyl' mansion and an 1857 terrace house built during the Gold Rush.
