Burwood Walks #28: Favourite Reserve Walk (part 2)

07/03/2020 Mark Learmonth

Our twenty-eighth walk begins where Part 1 finished in issue #155, on the corner of Burwood Highway and Elgar Road (Tram Stop 62), and will finish near Burwood Village. The reserves around Burwood have strong points of attraction, so choosing a favourite will be a challenge. I do hope that you enjoy the second part of this challenge. This walk is approximately 6km, and can be followed on Melway maps 60 and 61.

Mother’s Day in Australia

On Sunday 10 May many Australians will celebrate Mother’s Day. The tradition of gift-giving on Mother’s Day, although well-established in the USA, did not begin in Australia until 1924. In 1870, American writer and women’s rights activist Julia Ward Howe, author of the Battle Hymn of the Republic, had proposed that a mother’s day for peace be commemorated every year in June.
