Studley Park - Golf Course Circuit
A 4 km circuit in and around the Studley Park Golf Course on July 5, 2015. This started at the Boulevard Restaurant opposite the Villa Abba Historical House, and included an investigation of the site of the former Government-run Kew Fish Hatchery, which operated from 1901 to 1950.
The Golf Course now occupies the Hatchery site - some artefacts remain. The site of the former Hatchery Reservoir is now the Sir Arthur Rylah Oval. The concrete hatching ponds were filled in, around 1951 and the tops of the pond walls are visible in the large cleared area surrounded by mature pine trees.
