History of Darling Harbour
This event is presented as part of the National Trust Heritage Week and co-hosted by Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority.
Roger Parris and Wayne Johnson co-authored the book, A History of Sydney's Darling Harbour which is sumptuously illustrated and has been published by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority to coincide with the 21st Birthday of this, Sydney's premier meeting and entertainment place. The book examines over 200 years of change and transformation, and looks at the wide range of maritime and manufacturing industries, as well as many world "firsts", that centred on Darling Harbour.
