14/7/2019 – St Helena Island tour with a difference

This is not your average tour. Belinda is an accredited tour guide on the island and actually trained all other tour guides for a very long time. But the aim of this tour is not to go to the common places with the standard stories, but to go to the places that match the people on the tour. I am aiming to know everyone’s connection to the island if you have one before we go, so I can deliver their story in the place where it occurs. This is where historical research, story and place come together in the most meaningful way.

We will be walking for a few kilometres and there is no other form of transport, so you will need to be mobile enough to walk that distance. I will take breaks along the way and we will lunch in the Superintendent’s Gardens for a treat also. Being winter, it will be good weather for a long stroll.

The tour departs from the Fort Lytton Jetty at 9.30am sharp and returns at approximately 2.30pm.  You will be travelling on board the Lady Brisbane for the trip to and from the Island.

BYO hat, lunch and water.  Cost is $60.00 per person.  Bookings can be made via the St Helena Community website or email Belinda Daly bd66@optusnet.com.au.

PLEASE NOTE:  You will need to be able to comfortably walk a few kilometres on uneven ground.  Not suitable for wheelchairs, wheelie walkers or walking sticks.
