Rivendell Open Day – 10:00am
July 25, 2021 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am
Our next Open Day at Rivendell (Thomas Walker Hospital) will be on Sunday, 25th July, 2021. The grounds will be open from 9:30am until approximately 3:00 pm.
COVID SAFETY: All visitors will need to register by using the Service NSW QR Code at the booking-in table or have their details recorded by one of our volunteers.
Bookings Essential: Because we have to control the numbers going through the main building, this limits us to the number of people we can take through on the day. Because of this it is essential that you contact us to book a suitable time for your tour. As the tours fill fairly quickly, particularly the early ones, we suggest you book early to get your preferred tour time.
Guided Tour: The tour will be through the main building and will take approximately one hour. It involves two sets of stairs. Because of the nature of the work at Rivendell we are only allowed into some parts of the building – but these are the most interesting sections – so we need to take you through in small groups. The first tour commences at 10:00 am and they continue every 30 minutes until the last one at 1:30 pm. Grounds will be closed at approximately 3:00 p.m.
Outbuildings: The Joanna Walker Children’s Cottage Hospital and the Gate House (wharf) will both be open and you may visit these independently either before or after your tour.
Online Bookings: All bookings are now done on line. Just go to our web site and click on the appropriate button, which will take you to the booking form. You will be able to print out your ticket, which you need to bring on the day.
