Tours and Activities



Themed Tours

We currently have scheduled the following themed tours for 2018:

  • Sunday, 21st October at 2:00pm
    • Good Sports!
    • Any time is a great time to talk sport in Melbourne.   The Spring Carnival is just around the corner and even though it’s October the Sherrins will still get a run. We’ll take you into the shady world of racing and introduce you to one of the ‘characters’ of the golfing world.

Cost:  $10.00 - members free

Tours will leave from the cemetery gates at the cnr High Street and Parkhill Road, Kew at the time designated.  Expected duration for our tours is around two hours.  We recommend wearing good walking shoes.
