Highlights and Current Projects:
Located on Sydney Harbour, Lavender Bay enjoys beautiful parklands, magnificent harbour views, and foreshore walks along which are displayed public artworks by renowned local artist Peter Kingston.
Wendy Whiteley's "Secret Garden", much loved by all, is nestled between Clark Park on Lavender Street and the Lavender Bay rail shunting yard. Lavender Bay Precinct has committed to provide ongoing tangible support to Wendy Whiteley and her gardens.
Lavender Bay and McMahons Point, which is also included within the Precinct, are both noted for their historic character. There are many fine examples of largely intact mid-19th and early 20th century buildings. Residents also enjoy a village atmosphere with outdoor cafes, galleries and small specialty shops.
This bay, and later, suburb was named after George Lavender. He was an officer in charge of the ship called "Phoenix" that housed convicts moored in this bay. He married Billy Blue's daughter, Susannah, and eventually made this district his home.
