Event Details

North Sydney History Walks: Neutral Bay

This walk is one of North Sydney Council’s new series of 10 self-guided North Sydney History Walks. English architect Walter Liberty Vernon developed lots with the Neutral Bay Land Development Company in the 1880s. Although the turn of the century is associated with the ‘dawn’ of Australia, the aesthetic was quite English. Tastes changed; Georgian Revival and Mediterranean style houses were built from 1910 to the 1930s. Medium and high-density flats replaced homes with large gardens from the 1950s.

Join Council Historian Dr Ian Hoskins to explore the rich heritage of a suburb which, despite ongoing development pressure, is still a showcase of late 19th and early 20th century architecture demonstrating Australians’ affection for English-style architecture. Please bring water and sunscreen.
