The Story of Jimmy Melrose, Glenelg Aviator Extraordinaire

A walk and talk about an enterprising young Glenelg pilot who lived on the Esplanade from 1913 until his death in 1936. He achieved amazing aviation exploits in his three years from 19 to 22 years of age. 

We will walk along the 1km long Jimmy Melrose Park, developed as a joint enterprise by our Local Council and the State Government in 2002.
