Please join members and friends to learn more about the the Benevolent Asylum, the first permanent building in the area. Opened in 1851 on a ten-acre site in rolling green countryside, later to be bound by Abbotsford, Elm, Curzon and Miller Streets, it grew into a massive complex of three-story buildings, housing some 700 souls, which dominated the North and West Melbourne skyline until its demolition in 1911.

Expected event date: 4th or 5th of May 2024 at 3pm.

Bookings for the walk will be available closer to the date.

Ensure you reserve a ticket early so you don’t miss out.
