McMahons Point Walk

1211a1

The Australian Architecture Association is pleased to announce the addition of a brand new walk to our tour program, the McMahons Point Walk. Developed by one of our experienced AAA volunteer guides, the walk will be officially launched on Saturday 8 December 2012.

McMahons Point is a small lower north shore peninsula jutting into Sydney Harbour, flanked on the west by Berrys Bay, on the east by Lavender Bay and terminated at the tip by Blues Point..  The history of this suburb started in the late 1800's.  It was a popular place to catch a ferry to the city before the Harbour Bridge came along.

This suburb was known for its boat building and maritime activities. Now, it is predominantly a residential suburb, made up of a variety of housing stock from small stone cottages, terrace houses to high rise apartments, all enjoying outstanding views of the harbour.

Blues Point Tower designed by the late Harry Seidler in 1961, is a well known landmark for McMahons Point. It was Australia's tallest residential building until 1970.
