Melbourne at War: Hidden Histories audio tour

Australia, as part of the British Empire, fought in this dreadful war for over four long years, from 5 August 1914 to 11 November 1918. Some called it the war to end all wars.

The efforts of those on the home front were vital to continuing the war in Europe and the Middle East.

The tour highlights how significant sites on the home front contributed to the course of the war and highlights the support provided by many who never saw a battlefield.

This audio tour will take you to seven major locations around the CBD of Melbourne, all of which played an important role during the war and still remain to tell the tale.

The audio walking tour can be taken as a complete tour taking about one hour or, if you wish, you can drop in at any location.

You can play this audio on your computer, transfer the files to a portable MP3 player, or listen on your mobile phone or tablet.
