- Society President, Sue Law, and Junior Vice-President Doug Orford carry the Society Banner leading the parade float.
The Shire of Eltham Historical Society's parade float featured a gold mining theme - "The Eltham Goldrush"
Bruce Ness assembled the float with items loaned by Warrandyte Historical Society and quite a bit of his own ingenuity. Phyllis Macdonald arranged for some of her friends from the Victorian Folk Music Club to provide appropriate musical accompaniment. To provide a level of authenticity, a present day prospector, Jack Hodson was placed in charge of the equipment on the float.
