Harewood Heritage Day is back, moving from ‘Scots on the Swamp’ into a broader celebration of Indigenous, post-contact and multicultural heritage. Boonwurung N’Arweet Dr Carolyn Briggs will be Welcoming us to Country in the presence of HM Queen Victoria, HRH Prince Albert and numerous local luminaries of the Victorian era in Victoria. Come as your favourite local historical character or your 2022 self. Proceeds to the Koo Wee Rup Regional Health Service.
Harewood is a beautiful country Victorian property at Koo Wee Rup that has been my home since the early 1990s. It has remarkable original contents that have been a source of much interest and fun over the years. This is the first of twelve videos that will show what’s happening in the garden each month as well as sharing a bit about the Lyall family who built the house and stories of people who have lived, worked and visited here.
Unfortunately Harewood’s Scots on the Swamp event that was due to take place next Sunday 22nd March has had to be cancelled due to coronavirus
