Art & Architecture of Lavender Bay: A Walking Tour

This Event Is

Sold out
Join historian Ian Hoskins on a walking tour of Lavender Bay. Discover the art, architecture and history of the area that is home to some of Sydney’s most iconic landmarks, including the Harbour Bridge and Luna Park.

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.
