Art & Architecture of Lavender Bay: A Walking Tour
This Event Is
The spectacular views from Lavender Bay have inspired generations of artists who have celebrated its great beauty. In the 1970s and early 1980s the waterfront enclave became a bayside bohemia and home to some of Sydney’s most celebrated artists, including Brett Whiteley and Peter Kingston.
This tour has been designed to complement our latest exhibition, Bohemian Harbour: Artists of Lavender Bay, on now at the Museum of Sydney.
