About the event

Michael Guilfoyle emigrated to Sydney with Huguenot wife Charlotte Delafosse and family in 1849 and established a nursery in Waterloo then in Double Bay in 1850. Son, William Robert, collected for Sydney Botanic Garden and his father’s Exotic Nursery and was made Director of the Melbourne Botanic Garden in 1873.

Stuart leads a stroll through Darling Point and eastern Double Bay to marvel at Greenoaks/Bishopscourt, the Guilfoyle residence and a plenitude of spectacular trees. The walk starts at Mona Road and ends at Guilfoyle Park.
