Robin Boyd 5 homes tour

Sunday 10 November 2019
10 am – 4 pm

5 residential homes

Explore through self-guided tours two Robin
Boyd designed homes, his childhood home The Robins, and two other
residential designs by Walter Burley Griffin and Peter McIntyre, which
respond to the materiality, landscape, place and the Australian
lifestyle Boyd identified as the best qualities for a modern generation
of homes.
