In the year 1900, just a stone’s throw away from the present site of Ventuno restaurant, a dark discovery was made by a doctor within a humble house on a cobbled lane. As a result, the historic harbourside village of Millers Point would soon be re-possessed by the government and re-forged into the wool-centric workings of Walsh Bay. Where more than a dozen sea-faring pubs had once stood humming with sailors, larrikins and locals alike, only three 19th century hotels would soon remain. Where once the elegant mansions of merchant princes gazed over private stores and wharves, rows of heavy brick terraces would begin to line the suburb’s streets. Rewinding the clock to an earlier age, guests will go through Old Millers Point and Walsh Bay to reimagine the workings of this murky maritime village and its infamous evolution
