The original village of Mitcham, Brownhill Creek and the adjacent suburbs of Torrens Park, Hawthorn and Kingswood have many large and well-known Historical features as well as many that are not so well-known.

Join us on walks designed to show some of these historical features, learn about Mitcham’s local history, and raise money for research into Lung Cancer and other lung diseases.

Brownhill Creek and Ellison's Gully

Mitcham has an industrial history, some of which may be seen as we leisurely walk along Brownhill Creek and Ellison’s Gully. Watch out for “reminders” of the past, including a mine, an enigmatic stone-circle, a special water supply, evidence of farming and grazing a stone bridge and steep hills.

Please meet at 1pm at the Manure Pits on Brownhill Creek Road. Bring water and your camera.
