The Healesville Historical Walk was created in 2014 as part of Healesville's 150 year anniversary by collaboration between the Rotary Club of Healesville, Healesville & District Historical Society and Healesville 150th Committee.

There were 26 buildings to view on the tour, but sadly the French's Laundry Building was burned down.
