2010’s Heritage Festival programme was a huge success with a great range of events held in our local area. The Balmain Association’s ferry tour on board the historic Radar of former industrial sites was a sell out and accompanied the Association’s exhibition Balmain Locals help to make our Nation at the Watch House on Darling Street .
In Leichhardt our walking tour ARCHITECTUS – held on a breezy Sunday morning- was well attanded with people coming from as far as Sutherland to discover some of Norton Street’s architectural highlights.
Former Leichhardt councillor Hall Greenland presented a stirring overview of the life of long-time local activist and Leichhardrt alderman Nick Origlass to a packed crowd at Balmain Town Hall meeting room. Our friends at Heritage Group of Leichhardt District, meanwhile, launched their eagerly awaited book Exploring Leichhardt Heritage at Leichhardt Library.
