Visions from Sydney Cove and the AMP Building

Visions from Sydney Cove looks at developments during the 1960s, a time when Sydney was setting a foot on the world stage. Landmarks such as the Opera House and the contentious Cahill Expressway are featured.

Visit the National Trust Centre* to view a free exhibition with rarely seen objects and images from the National Trust Archives. The National Trust recently accepted part of the AMP Archives collection, spanning from 1849 to the present day, offering a unique insight into the organisation’s history. This collection focuses on the AMP building which was classified by the National Trust for its heritage significance in 2002.

Features of the exhibition include objects such as a wool baling hook dating from the colonial era which was uncovered from the site, a range of curious menus from the 19th century and a collection of vintage ads.
