Fitzroy’s Founding Footsteps

These four walking tours were developed by members of the Fitzroy History Society to celebrate the 150th Anniversary of the Municipality of Fitzroy.  They incorporate historic houses, hotels and other sites of significance, especially as they relate to the early years of Fitzroy’s self governance.  This pamphlet showing 4 walks was produced with the generous assistance of the City of Yarra.
