Kincumber walk celebrates heritage

Beatties Ship Building Yard during WW2

Kincumber Rotary Club’s 2018 4 Villages Walk will take place on May 6. The gentle 3.3km walk will celebrate the Coast’s shipbuilding history and maritime heritage, with visits to the villages of Kincumber, Yattalunga, Saratoga and Davistown.

The Walk commences from 10 am at the Kincumber Waterfront, with registration from 9:30 am. Davistown Reserve will also be transformed into an entertainment hub during the Walk, with buskers, bands, dancers, a vintage machinery display, good old fashioned Aussie trivia, an African Drum Circle, and a range of food and beverage vendors. There will also be a free shuttle bus from Davistown to Kincumber.

Historic models, fascinating history and a smorgasbord of entertainment are on offer on the day. Participants should purchase their 4 Villages Passport to participate on the day. At the end of the day, those who successfully fill out their Passports will go into the running to win one of four History and Heritage Ferry Tours.
