This is a repeat of a tour that has not been conducted for at least ten years!
Come and hear about the lives of some of the earliest mayors of St Kilda; from Benjamin Cowderoy, First President, to Sir George Turner, Albert Jacka VC, MC and Bar (yes…he was a mayor of St Kilda as well as a war hero), and many others. All served their community well.
