This walking tour, led by North Sydney Council Historian, Dr Ian Hoskins, will traverse the Union / Bank Street Conservation area of McMahons Point where humble working class housing rubs shoulders with larger dwellings built on the Euroka Estate that surrounded the grandest home of all, ‘Graythwaite’. Largely intact as a built landscape of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, it provides a fascinating insight into the diversity of North Sydney.

There will be steep streets to negotiate. The walk begins at Don Bank Cottage at 6 Napier Street North Sydney and ends on Union Street near Blues Point Road. Both start and finish are close to North Sydney Train Station. Places are limited and bookings are essential.

When: Friday 9 September 2016, 10:00am-12:30pm
Where: Meet at Don Bank Cottage, 6 Napier Street, North Sydney
Cost: Free – Bookings essential
