Members of the Kurrajong – Comleroy Historical Society will be assisting us with their historical knowledge of the area on this tour.

The President, David Griffiths, will join us at Richmond and give a historical commentary along the route to Kurrajong.

At Kurrajong we will meet Les Dollin and Frank Holland at the Memorial Park where they will give us a talk about the millstones that are a feature of the park. The Millstones were originally used at Benjamin Singleton’s mills at nearby Little Wheeney Creek.

The millstones (circa 1810) have been adopted as the Society's logo because they are the oldest European relic in "the Kurrajong" and because their chequered treatment - dumped in the creek (1860), retrieved and used as a war memorial (1920), discarded during road widening (1945), rescued (1958), forgotten, rescued again (1988) - is symbolic of how Kurrajong history has been treated.

After lunch David will again join us on the bus and give us a historical tour of the Kurrajong area, during which we will visit the churches and cemeteries.
