The Redfern Walk provides an insight into how Redfern has developed and is evolving into a cultural hub and hot property prospect.
From an area known more for industry and public housing, the introduction of new government business schemes, changes to the demographic and the real estate pressures of its inner city location, Redfern is fast becoming home to a generation of cultural creatives.
Developed with the support of the City of Sydney's Local Community Grants Program, this two hour architecture walk explores the changing landscape of Redfern's built environment.This transformation is epitomised by the presence of award winning designer homes and commercial premises, state of the art community facilities and a potpourri of retro shops, cafes, restaurants and bars.
This walk will start from the old post office and go through side streets to see some hidden residential buildings. We will then walk towards the railway line to see recent commecial and public architecture. The walk will conclude at Redfern Park where our tour leader will explain the urban design of the renovated park and the recent changes in the demographics of the area.
