Blundells Cottage - Handy Hints for Group Tours

Key information that will be conveyed during visit

Parking

Buses should park along Wendouree Drive as there are no specific bus spaces. The safest option is to stop at the brown wooden 'Blundells Cottage' sign and let the children off. Buses will need to go to the end of Wendouree Drive to turn in the turning circle before returning to collect the children.

When You Arrive

Approach the front of the cottage along a stone path. Children should remove their bags and be seated on the front lawn. In wet weather children can gather on the verandah.

Teachers can alert the staff member at the cottage that their group has arrived.

Tours

A brief introduction to the history of the cottage will be given on the front lawn. Then the class will need to be divided into groups of ten. Each group will be taken through the rooms of the house with a different guide. The tour will last approximately 40 minutes, making the total time on site about an hour.

For each group of ten students, one adult supervisor (teacher or parent) will be needed to accompany that group at all times.
