Sydney Art Deco & Modernist Walks

Peter Sheridan

Sydney Art Deco & Modernist Walks


The tiny 1 sq km precinct of Potts Point & Elizabeth Bay is a national treasure, containing the best collection of some 100 Art Deco (1930s and 40s) & Modernist (1960s) apartment blocks in Australia. 

This book provides a self-guided 2-3 hour tour of this landmark area which was Sydney’s first exclusive suburb. It still retains remnants of its 19th century glory with some nine colonial mansions, but is even more distinctive because of its 20th century Art Deco and Modernist built heritage.

Important Australian architects are represented with five beautiful Art Deco buildings by Emil Sodersten and five Modernist gems by Harry Seidler.

Potts Point and Elizabeth Bay is sited only 2 kms from the city on the harbour with beautiful parks and views. It has a village ambiance and contains some of the best restaurants in Sydney.
