Locality: Telling North Sydney stories in objects and pictures
North Sydney Heritage Centre has a permanent but evolving exhibition that explores various aspects of North Sydney’s history.
The exhibition uses stories associated with intriguing objects from North Sydney Council’s historical and pictorial collection.
Highlights include a 1930s red cedar model racing skiff of the type that used to be sailed in Berrys Bay; the 1938 Empire Games jacket given to local girl Joan Wakeham who swam for her country at the new North Sydney Olympic Pool; an early 20th century woollen swim suit; a postwar austerity wedding dress; and original artworks from the 1920s through to the present time.
