This walk focuses on a number of people in Glebe’s history including one who bestrode the Federation stage but also others who contributed to our community through their professions, their sport, their religion or their watering hole.
Walkers will also pass through areas of the Glebe Estate, a massive urban renewal project undertaken by the Federal Government from 1974.
