About the Tour

This walking tour takes you on a loop around the picturesque heritage town of Lockhart, known for its pretty verandahs with their ornate iron lacework. Along the way, we’ll discover various points of historical interest, but this agricultural Riverina region town is perhaps most famous for being home to the annual Spirit of the Land Festival. The National Farm Art competition is hosted here during the festival and we’ll see 17 of the sculptures in its permanent collection during our walk, and hear from some of the artists behind them. We’ll also stop to see the most recent winner, displayed outside the caravan park. The audio includes descriptions of the art for the visually impaired, too.

Some of the highlights include:

• The Greens Gunyah Museum
• Walter Day Park and its Walk of Fame exhibit
• The Lockhart Love Locks harbour
• The Water Tower Mural

How VoiceMap Works

Focus on your surroundings, not the screen

VoiceMap’s audio tour app uses GPS to play audio automatically, at the right time and place. Just install it, then download your tour and go to the starting point to begin your walk, drive, cycle, train trip or even boat ride.

Follow a route with turn-by-turn-directions

Tours follow a route from a fixed starting point. This is how we provide turn-by-turn directions. It also helps publishers tell a story greater than the sum of its parts. But you can use Resume to pick up a tour from the closest location whenever you like.

Listen as many times as you like

You can listen to your tours as often as you like using both the VoiceMap app and the VoiceMap website. Your access to tours doesn’t expire.

Take virtual tours anywhere

Just select Virtual mode in the VoiceMap app to listen to tours at home – or anywhere else. You’ll see the option after you download the tour. You can also listen to the whole tour here on the website.

Buy for less on voicemap.me and sync

Once you’ve purchased a tour, it’s added to your VoiceMap library. If you sign into the app using the same method you used on the website, you’ll have access to your full library of tours in both places.

Use VoiceMap offline

The VoiceMap app works entirely offline if there’s no data connection, so you don’t have to pay roaming fees. Just download the tour over WiFi before you get started.
