4-Villages Walk to acknowledge shipbuilding industry

Beatties Ship Building Yard during WW2

The 4-Villages Walk through Kincumber, Yattalunga, Saratoga and Davistown, to take place on May 6, has been organised by the Rotary Club of Kincumber.
The walk aims to enhance awareness of the Shipbuilder’s Memorial on the Kincumber foreshore and to increase knowledge of the environmental and heritage value of the four villages that were at the core of the region’s ship building industry.
There are five historical displays that highlight the history of shipbuilding in the area, starting with the Aboriginal bark boats by the Darkinjung people.
There are additional displays at Kincumber Hotel, and a sculpture on the water reserve by Central Coast artist, John Woulfe.
Davistown Progress Hall will also exhibit a model railway, a Gosford Library shipbuilders display and a Brisbane Water Historical Society display.
To be able to experience these five historical displays, a $5 4-Villages Passport has to be purchased, with children’s passports free if accompanied by an adult.
Light meals will be provided throughout the day at Kincumber and Davistown, with a mobile café operating alongside walkers.
