Born in England in 1762, Thomas Moore came to Sydney as ship's carpenter on the Britannia. When Governor Lachlan Macquarie proclaimed the new town of Liverpool on 7 November 1810, he commissioned Moore to build the town. Moore was supervisor of public works for the next decade.
Starting from the site of his Liverpool house, the tour will head to the NSW heritage-listed Francis Greenway designed hospital (1825) and hear stories of the inmates of the Old and Destitute Men's Asylum.
The walk will continue through the heart of old Liverpool's Bigge's Square, the site of hangings and floggings, on to the old court house, Australia's oldest Anglican Church, St. Luke's (1819), before ending at Liverpool's Pioneers' Cemetery.
This tour is part of the National Trust Heritage Festival and partially funder by Liverpool City Council.
