Preserving Cremorne: Embracing Our Heritage for the Future. An interactive talk with Elizabeth Farrelly

The original character of Cremorne, of tree-lined streets featuring cottages with verdant gardens, is being rapidly replaced by modern developments. Come to hear Elizabeth Farrelly, architect, author and columnist, talk about how to embrace change whilst preserving our local heritage for the future.

The picturesque suburb of Cremorne has been a sought-after residential area since the 1880s due to its convenient location, good access to transport and magnificent harbour vistas. Today, Cremorne remains a highly desirable suburb for these same qualities. However, soaring land prices and a disregard for the importance of preserving the remaining stands of Victorian/Federation-era houses has resulted in wide-spread demolition to make way for multi-storey buildings.

Our speaker, Elizabeth Farrelly, has written widely about similar issues in her new book, Killing Sydney – The Fight for a City’s Soul.

You’ll learn about the importance of honouring our past by celebrating our lived heritage in the present day. This will give you a chance to consider the relevance of these stories, ensuring our local heritage, which is intrinsic to Cremorne’s character, is protected for future generations.

There will be a Q & A session with Elizabeth, and afterwards you can purchase her book.
