Where the Traveller Meets the Town
Waltzing down Elderslie Streetscape
When meeting someone or visiting somewhere for the first time first impressions are always so important in making an assessment of whether or not we would like to continue to learn more about that person or place. In terms of a first meeting with a town, there is no greater first impression on offer than its streetscape.
Elderslie Streetscape is testament to this first impression. What lies beneath is even more impressive. As we dig deeper on this walk the richness of the Elderslie Streetscape will come alive as our Vision Splendid guide takes you on this short introduction to Winton journey.
Your tour will begin at the famous North Gregory Hotel foyer where you will head left down the full length of the streetscape to visit the Swagman, cross over Andrew Barton Patterson, walk the full length of the other side, cross again and then continue back along Elderslie St back to the North Gregory Hotel. Along this loop you will learn about the Banjo Patterson legend stones history, the backgrounds to the Pelican Waterhole and the iconic Dinosaur Bins and many other gems of information about our town.
Upon our return to the North Gregory Hotel, we will enjoy a pre-dinner drink in the renowned 20th Century artist Daphne Mayo dining room as we stand around the piano where Banjo Patterson gave his first public presentation of the song ‘Waltzing Matilda’
After the tour’s end you are invited to stay and join us at the North Gregory Hotel where excellent wining and dining options via a delightfully surprising extensive menu that belies its location will be available in the evening at the renowned 20th century artist Daphne Mayo Dining Room.
Please wear enclosed shoes, hat and sunscreen.
