Behind the Scenes: North Sydney Council’s historical ‘treasure trove’
Council’s Historical Services department collects and cares for an enormous variety of heritage items - from artworks to archaeology, clothing to cooking equipment.
You are invited to join Historical Services staff for a free tour behind-the-scenes of some of these stored artifacts, which have so much to tell us about the people of North Sydney
In some cases, we know a great deal about who made an object, who used it, when and where. Often, though, we have to rely on the object itself to provide us with these clues.
Only a small proportion of this fascinating collection is on display at any one time; the majority is stored in our dedicated archive facility at Council’s Depot.
Free, but RSVP please at Online bookings essential before 7 February
Accessibility: tour includes one flight of stairs; please wear comfortable enclosed shoes.
Meeting Point: the tour will be held at a Council depot in Cammeray, exact meeting point will be given to attendees closer to the time.
Transport to and from events for the Seniors Festival can be arranged through Community Connect Transport for North Sydney Council Residents. Please contact Community Connect Transport on 9490 9500 to discuss your transport needs.
