Corrimal Hotel

Corrimal Hotel

The Corrimal Hotel  has operated from its corner on the Princes Highway since it first opened in January 1901. Being the Publican of a successful hotel can be hard work - even life threatening - as Charles Edwards discovered in 1909. One night, his bottle of ginger beer  was spiked with enough Strychnine to kill him. Luckily his dinner guest at the time was the local GP, who acted quickly to save his life.

Our report documenting the outcome of the heritage assessment was used to successfully impose an Interim...

Lifting the lid on Dulwich Hill

Lifting the lid on Dulwich Hill

Its easy to take this 1920 bungalow at face-value when you walk down the street; it's a neat, old house that looks like it 'belongs' in an inner-west Sydney street. 

While the bungalow is special in its own right, when we dug deeper into the history of the site and its surrounds, we turned up the ghost of the grand residence Toddington, and discovered that this address at The Boulevarde, Dulwich Hill had been home to some pretty...

I believe that that the general public assume that the interpretation of historic places and the stories told of them by their...
