1996, the Gisborne and Mount Macedon Districts Historical Society created
Gisborne Pioneer Park, adjacent to the Court House, by securing Government
funding and Local Government support, to provide work for unemployed youth
of the district. This project included the laying of paving stones from a
former heritage site, the building of a thirty three metre long bluestone
wall, landscaping of the area and the completion of restoration of the
bluestone lockup, the brick stables and the privy.
The Gisborne Pioneer Park was officially opened on Australia Day 1997,
with the unveiling of the inaugural plaques. Since that time, families
have continued to place family plaques on the wall, to commemorate the
work of our early district pioneers.
The next plaque unveiling will take place on Australia Day, January
26th. If you are interested in placing a plaque on our Pioneer
Wall to remember your ancestor who was resident in this district prior
to 1918, make a commitment now.
Make a commitment now and ask members of
your extended family to share the cost and create a focus for
yourselves and your descendants when visiting Gisborne.
Cost of a plaque including GST
