Next Meeting

The next meeting of the society will be held in the meeting room of the Archives and Research Centre at Mittagong


DATE:    Thursday 23rd May 2019 at 
2.00pm

GUEST SPEAKER: Stephen Gard

TOPIC: 

Author and history writer Stephen Gard, of Blue Dawe Books, Thirlmere, gave an entertaining talk last year about his book, ‘Once Upon a Hume, the traveller’s companion Volume 1’.

 

Stephen has now published a second volume of this early Hume Highway history. It traverses the Mittagong to Marulan segment and briefly enters the outskirts of Goulburn. His talk will bring the book to life, including about the hazards not only of motorists versus Hanging Rocks, Black Bob's Creek and Paddy's River obstacles but Berrima pedestrians and enthusiastic Billy Cart Derby participants.

 

Visitors are always very welcome to our meetings.

Afternoon tea will be served after the meeting - gold coin donation please.
