From Sawbones to Specialists

Has the swift development of Covid vaccines got you intrigued by advances in medicine? 

Join us as we time-travel through the evolution of Australian medicine, from colonial times - when the convict hospital caused more illness than it cured - to the cutting-edge treatments of today.

Discover how advances in scientific and medical knowledge have influenced the treatment of patients and their ailments since pre-settlement and the early days of the colony, through to the current time. Along the way there were some decidedly odd developments!

This walking tour includes a variety of significant sites including Aboriginal lands, the sites of the Colonial Hospitals, the George Street and Macquarie Street Asylums and the Parramatta District Hospital. It concludes outside Brislington Nursing Museum.

Bookings are essential.
