Hornsby Heritage Walk

room 14 ECHOES

Sydney, New South Wales, Australia

This is an audio guided historic walking tour of the business and retail precinct of Hornsby, and it highlights the rich social and cultural past within Hornsby Shire. It is an easy grade walk which takes approximately 90 minutes to complete or can be split into two shorter walks (e.g. the east and the west side of the railway station). We hope you enjoy experiencing Hornsby’s buildings, parks and monuments of significance and learning about some of the stories behind them.
