Rivendell Open Day – 1:00pm
July 30 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pmFree - $15
Our next Open Day at Rivendell (Thomas Walker Hospital) will be on Sunday, 30th July, 2017. The grounds will be open from 9:30 am until approximately 2:00 pm.
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 continue every 30 minutes until the last one at 12:30 pm.
Outbuildings: The Joanna Walker Children’s Cottage Hospital and the Watergate (wharf) will both be open and you may visit these independently either before or after your tour.
Online Payments will be processed through PayPal. To pay using cash, please phone the secretary, Lois Michel, on 9744-8528.
Costs: Adults, $15.00; Concessions, $10.00; Children FREE.
