About the event

Explore Leichhardt with Beatrice Scheepers in the first of two walks in the area.

John White (1756?-1832), Surgeon General to the First Fleet, was an excellent physician, a keen naturalist and an accomplished flirt! White received two grants, the first of 100 acres in 1793, between what is now Parramatta Road and Petersham station, which he named Hamond Hill Farm.

Stroll part of this land, learn about some of the features and creatures associated with White and discover how the suburb got its name. Plus admire one of Australia's few engineering landmarks to enjoy the attention of a Royal Commission.
