Tempe House Open Weekend

Marrickville Heritage Society will once again be having a room at Tempe House for it's open weekend.

Come learn a little about the history of the Green Line trams that ran to suburbs including Marrickville, Petersham, Canterbury, Tempe & Dulwich Hill.

Publications, commemorative pens & walking maps  will be for sale, along with a display of other heritage information.



The day will also include heritage talks and guided tours from honorary historian for Tempe House (and MHS member), Ross Berry and St George Historical Society.

The weekend will begin at 10am on Saturday 5th April with an Aboriginal smoke ceremony signalling a "welcome to nation" message.

Sisters of the Good Samaritan Catholic nuns will talk about Tempe House's use as a young women's reform school.

The weekend runs Saturday & Sunday 10am-4pm.

Entry is by gold coin donation.
