The Footpath Guides on ABC TV The Mix and ABC News

May 25, 2018


The Footpath Guides were featured last weekend (Saturday 19th and Sunday 20th) on ABC TV The Mix and ABC News. Watch the segment here.

Co-creator of Footpath Guides Jacques Sheard takes presenter Lisa Skerrett on a guided walk of highlights from the Melbourne and Sydney guides.

Buildings featured in the segment include Hosies Hotel, ICI Building, and State Library of Victoria in Melbourne; and Water Sewerage Board, Rocks Police Station, The Rocks, and Masonic Centre in Sydney. We're expecting this to promote renewed interest in the guides.

The Footpath Guides are a series of six, pocket-sized walking guides covering notable architecture examples from different eras. The Melbourne guides include St Kilda 1850-1960, Joseph Read 1850-1890, and Mid-Century Modern 1950-1970. The Sydney guides include The Rocks 1815-1950, Inter-War 1915-1940, and Modern 1950-1990. The guides are also available in a box set.
