On our second FOBIF walk for the year on Easter Sunday local geologist, Clive Willman, led a group of 16 through Castlemaine streets and up to the Burke and Wills monument. Along the way he discussed the type and source of rocks that were used in historic buildings such as the 1857 Telegraph Station and 1873-4 Post Office in Barker Street, and the 1860s Lock-up in Hargreaves Street. The walk finished with a terrific geological slide show at the Midland Hotel.
Clive brought along an array of photographs and drawings to help explain geological history of the area.
Thank you Clive for leading this informative and enjoyable geology tour. Our next fobif walk is on 21 May to Mount Alexander.
