Throughout May 2011 the Lilydale & District Historical Society will be holding a series of events celebrating the life of Dame Nellie Melba in her home community. There will be township walks to places she sang in, helped build and supported; cemetery tours to her grave and that of her family and friends; guided bus tours for groups around Lilydale and Coldstream visiting her home and places linked to her life.

On her 150th birthday, the society will hold a special function in the Lilydale Athenaeum Theatre where the Diva sang many times to raise funds for many local organisations.
