Join the National Trust Women’s Committee for a private house inspection of 3 houses in Woollahra.
Tuesday 8 November, 10.30am-12.30pm or 1pm-3pm
The name Woollahra may have had its origins in the Aboriginal word ‘woo-la-ra’, translated in 1788 by First Fleet officer Daniel Southwell as ‘the look-out’. The establishment and progress of Woollahra was mainly due to Daniel Cooper, a successful merchant and speaker of the Legislative Assembly. Most of the present Municipality of Woollahra is encompassed by Cooper’s 1400 acre estate, the suburb being named after Cooper’s Woollahra House, built in 1856 on the site of the former Henrietta Villa at Point Piper. Today Woollahra is a vibrant inner city suburb where the houses of yesteryear are lovingly given new life and there is space for innovative contemporary architecture.
