Historical Legal Precinct Walking Tour

William Street is steeped in history.

As part of Law Week, deeply knowledgeable guides from the Royal Historical Society of Victoria will lead groups through the legal precinct and reveal William Street’s long and storied history.

This guided tour of Melbourne’s legal district is a crash course in Victoria’s social and legal history. From early settlement and the development of our legal system, through to our status as a rebel settlement, an outpost of NSW, the Colony of Victoria and, finally, as one of Australia’s federated states — Melbourne’s legal precinct has withstood it all. Don’t miss this opportunity to discover more about Melbourne’s history.
