Looking at Architecture: Point Piper Day

A steep and rocky peninsular stretching into the south-eastern waters of Sydney Harbour, Point Piper was named for Captain John Piper. His Henrietta Villa, built on an early colonial grant, commanded astonishingly wide views of the Harbour from the Bridge to the Heads.
