Walking Thomastown

In April, we explored Thomastown transformed after dark.

We came together to discover the historic Thomastown area in a new light. From Aboriginal dreaming and productive land use through early European settlement into current day culture and hopes for the future.

Walking Thomastown was a night-time walking event that spanned over 2.5km of paths from Main St to German Lane and back. It featured a variety of lights, projections, sculptures and illuminations along the way as well as audio commentary from Wurundjeri elders to local school children and lots of people in between.
