Alberton: A History Walk of Our Neighbourhood

room 24 ECHOES

Adelaide

Our neighbourhood, Alberton in South Australia, has a long and rich history embedded in its soil, squares, streets, buildings and landmarks. This self-guided tour unlocks new perspectives of Alberton's past and present by layering historical accounts and records with the memories and stories of those that have called this beautiful suburb home.

In the future, we hope to add more places and stories to the walk. If you are or know someone with a story to share, please get in touch with us at historyproject.alberton@gmail.com.

If you enjoy this walk, why not share it with your friends? # #sahistoryfest # #welovealberton # #albertonhistory # #thisismyneighbourhood
