What do Lachlan Macquarie, Eber Bunker, Francis Greenway, Maria Lock, and Surgeon John White have in common? They have all contributed to making Liverpool an important colonial heritage precinct with many significant buildings, including two Greenway masterpieces. Macquarie had intended Liverpool to be one of the major satellite towns, a hub for agriculture and transport in the colony, and what remains provides opportunities to tell stories of the past, such as - how did Liverpool contribute to the notorious six o’clock closing? Meet at the stairs entrance to Liverpool Station (Bigge Street) 10 minutes before the tour starts so it can commence on time.

This walk will go ahead whatever the weather, except where the guide deems there to be a threat to health and safety. In this situation you will be contacted with an alternative date. Please ensure your mobile phone number is up-to-date with WEA before enrolling and ensure that you have it with you on the day in case the tutor needs to contact you.
