As part of the Epping Road upgrade, the historic Wollert Church is being packed up, picked up and will be heading to a new home at one of our existing properties, thanks to a joint initiative with Major Road Projects Victoria and City of Whittlesea.

 

This lovely little weatherboard church will undergo restoration and commence a second life, where it will be accessible to the public.

It was a long wait, but the first tours of Jack's Magazine recommenced in April 2022.

 

If you missed out in April or May, you can book the next one, scheduled for Sunday, 5th June 2022.

 

Bookings are essential and can be made via eventbrite.

 

For groups of between 15–20 we may be able to organise a private tour. Please email your enquiry to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

 

Working Heritage also opens up the site for special events like Open House Melbourne which usually takes place in July each year (pandemincs-permitting).

Since the state of emergency was declared in Victoria in March 2020, Working Heritage has negotiated rent relief for our lessees across the sixteen heritage properties in our care.

 

As a self-funded not-for-profit, we have foregone crucial income to assist our tenants' survival though this unprecedented crisis. We are hopeful that Victoria’s collective effort to reduce infection rates will succeed and that recovery of community, cultural and business activity can soon commence, and ultimately succeed.

 

We look forward to visiting all of our tenants again and to seeing their businesses recover and thrive.
