Thursday May 11th, 1pm
Short ‘n sweet history tour of The Australasian

Drop in to the state heritage-listed Australasian for a short and sweet guided history tour. We tour the lobby, lower deck and dining room. Hear about the remarkable first builder/publican and the many other interesting residents and tenants. We finish with current owner Juliet Michell’s links to Goolwa.
Gold coin donation, enter by the front door at 1pm. Cheers!
