Astronomy in Burwood

Have you ever wondered what that bright star is called, twinkling majestically in the early evening sky? Do you want to recognise the shapes of the constellations? Then you may be interested in the Astronomical Society of Victoria. Anybody with a fascination for astronomy is welcome to join, and for a small fee, you get access to the whole Universe!

Burwood Walks #24: Caulfield Racecourse Reserve Walk

Our twenty-fourth walk begins at East Malvern Railway Station. For public transport users in Burwood, SmartBus 903 runs south along Warrigal Road on its journey to Mordialloc. After Ashwood, it descends into Holmesglen. Leave the bus here, go to Holmesglen station, taking a citybound train for just one station to East Malvern. The walk is about 7km, and mainly level. Melway maps 69 and 68 cover the route. Sections of the walk have no tree cover, so prepare accordingly. If you have binoculars, bring them along.

Thank you for your article in the Burwood Bulletin – Relay power in Hawthorn. Our Committee for Hawthorn Relay For Life reached our financial goals before the event started last weekend. Our goal for the event was $110 000 and we are currently sitting on $133 700. Our event has been running for 14 years and this year we smashed the $1.5 million mark. Thank you for your contribution to making our event a success.

I’ve got quite a bit of work from the Burwood Bulletin over the years and I think I’ve had my little ad running for about 15 years and had lots of jobs and met some lovely people. My main motivation is to give the BB some extra much needed income to help save this great newsletter/magazine. Regards, Martyn
