A guided walk in the beautiful and historic Bradfield Park North

Bradfield Park North is a little gem. Join a guided walk in the park with our 3 local experts to discover the layers of history evidenced by the landscape, architecture and engineering features around us.

The tour, of about 1 hour, will be led by Dr Ian Hoskins, author and one of Sydney’s foremost historians, David Banbury, Landscape Architect original designer of Bradfield Park and Frank Johnson, the immediate past Chair of Engineering Heritage. Walk with them and discover the magic and history of Bradfield Park.

We start with the destruction of the community of Milsons Point in the 1920s to make way for the construction of the Sydney Harbour Bridge and the gift of the remnant land in trust to North Sydney Council as compensation. We will see the heritage inlays of the old houses and shops and experience the revitalization of the Park in 2003 under the leadership of David and understand the thoughtful concepts he has incorporated including the sunken garden and the entrance to the Station. Frank will show us that the Bridge is not only a remarkable engineering achievement, but architecture is critical to its design.

The layers of history help us discover our connections to the past.
