Event Details

Gardens have featured in North Sydney since the 19th century. Lush gardens surrounded the villas Clifton and The Dingle at Kirribilli and Chinese people ran market gardens at Cammeray in the late 1800s.

Suburban backyards were planted with vegetables, front gardens with flowers. From the late 20th century native plants replaced introduced species. Council has encouraged these gardens as Native Havens.

Yet images and descriptions of North Sydney gardens are rare in Stanton Library’s collection. We invite you to share no more than 10 photographs or documents relating to local gardens. Staff will scan the items and help you complete a form to tell us as much as you can about them. Digital copies will be made for public research via the Library catalogue, as well as for you to take home.

Online bookings essential
