The Parkville Association is thrilled to announce the release of our very first MOBILE APP - the Parkville Heritage Walks app.
The Association acknowledges that this app is based on the extensive local history research undertaken by Norah Killip OAM, who assisted in development of the app. Funding from the Public Record Office of Victoria to assist the development of the Parkville Heritage Walks app is also acknowledged.
The Parkville Heritage Walks app provides two three self-guided tours of our historical South Parkville precinct, using your mobile phone or tablet as a digital tour guide. The app builds on the printed walks brochures and includes digital route maps and full colour photographs of each stop.
