Starting from mid-July, AAA will be offering three "Walk Through Time" tours every month: one on a Saturday and two on Thursdays. These new walks are made possible by three new volunteer tour leaders finishing our six-month training program.
Linda Bayer, Narelle Callanan and Doug Cooper will join Vincent Lam (see the team below) in leading this unique walk which showcases Sydney architecture chronologically. Apart from learning the narratives we have been using in the past 8 years, the new volunteers have done a lot of research themselves to enrich the tour.
We start our journey by looking at Georgian and Victorian Architecture along Macquarie Street. We will march down Martin Place and see 20th Century architecture before the second world war adopting architectural styles from the USA and Europe. Finally, we will roam through Australian's first street, George Street, where many of our important post-war buildings are located and finish with contemporary architecture of the new millenium. Through these examples, you will see how different factors, such as technology, politics and economy shaped the development of our city and influenced the architectural styles through the years.
To celebrate the introduction of the expanded "Walk Through Time" program, we are offering $10 off this walk for full price tickets of $30 during July and August. Just enter promotional code "FBTIME" when you book. Also on top of the half price student tickets, we are now offering half price tickets for this walk to Seniors Card holders.
