2022 Robert Hoddle Birthday Lunch

Date & Time

Thursday, 21 Apr 2022
12:00 pm - 2:00 pm AEST

Join our Victorian Land Surveying Commission Committee as we celebrate the birthday of Victoria's first Surveyor-General, Robert Hoddle.

Robert Hoddle was one of Victoria's most well know surveyors, especially relating to the Melbourne CBD.  Hoddle was active in the eastern colonies having assisted John Oxley is some of his surveys in Brisbane, surveyed a route over the Blue Mountains and was involved in Mitchells Map of the Nineteen Counties as well as carrying out surveys where Canberra is now located.

The Mail Exchange Hotel is built on the land where Hoddle lived most of his life in Melbourne and is being encouraged to become a local watering hole for surveyors.

We would like to once again take the opportunity to get surveyors together on 21 April to commemorate Hoddle's Birthday.

The wonderful Judith Scurfield will be a giving a presentation at the lunch.  Judy is the co-author of the book The Hoddle Years, retired Map Librarian at the State Library of Victoria and the Curator of the Kew Historical Society.

Attendees will have the chance to purchase lunch and drinks at the pub on the day. It is a great chance to catch up with surveying colleagues old and new.

Only limited places are available, and attendance is free, so we encourage you to register now below so you don't miss out!
