Mon 17th May:

The picturesque harbourside suburb of Cremorne has long been a sought-after residential area since the start of its development in the 1880s due to its convenient location, good access to transport and magnificent harbour vistas. Today, Cremorne remains a highly desirable suburb for the same qualities. However, soaring land prices and a disregard for the importance of preserving the remaining stands of Victorian/Federation-era houses has resulted in wide-spread demolition to make way for multi-storey buildings.

Elizabeth Farrelly, has written extensively about these issues in her book, “Killing Sydney – The Fight for a City’s Soul”.

With Elizabeth’s insights, you’ll learn about the importance of honouring our past by celebrating our lived heritage in the present day, with specific reference to Cremorne. Elizabeth’s talk will give you a chance to consider the relevance of these stories, ensuring our local heritage, which is intrinsic to our Cremorne’s character, is protected for future generations.

Don’t miss this one-off event with Elizabeth Farrelly. There will be an opportunity to interact with Elizabeth in a Q & A session, and you will also be able to purchase her book “Killing Sydney”.

This event is held as part of the National Trust Australian Heritage Festival 2021, the theme of which is ‘Our Heritage For the Future’
