The Glebe Society offers both guided and self-guided walks exploring Glebe, Forest Lodge and surrounds.
Guided Walks Program
The Glebe Society hosts a series of walks each year led by local historians, specialists and enthusiasts in areas such as the environment, town planning, art and architecture, and social and industrial history. Discover Glebe’s heritage and restoration, grand villas and humble cottages, its natural environment, parklands and parks, streetscapes and back lanes … its ‘‘grandeur and grit”.
The walks are scheduled on weekdays and weekends, take between 1.5 and 3 hours and usually finish at a café or pub. Numbers are usually limited to between 20 and 30 people. Costs vary but are typically $20 for members, $25 for non-members. See the current Guided Walks program, here and in each Bulletin.
