Ultimo, Embassy Conference Centre

The Embassy Conference Centre is a historic building on George Street, in the inner city suburb of Ultimo. Designed by Varney Parkes, the son of Sir Henry Parkes, it was originally built as a branch of the Bank of New South Wales in 1894. The Federation Romanesque design of the facade reflects the boom period of the late 1800s. A gold smelting and assaying department, established at this Railway Square branch in 1915, provided the best facilities for the treatment of gold coming from mines in Australia and New Guinea. It is now a venue for hire for meetings, seminars and conferences.

Enmore Theatre

The Enmore Theatre is Sydney’s oldest and longest running live theatre, located in the inner west suburb of Enmore. Originally built in 1908, it opened to the public as a photo-play theatre in 1912. It was extensively renovated in 1920 and a number of times since then, so that it includes elements of Art Nouveau, Edwardian, Art Moderne and Art Deco styles of architecture. In 1969 it was renamed the Finos Theatre and screened Greek language films until the 1980s when audiences declined. The building was refitted and reopened in 1985 with its original name of Enmore Theatre. This photo is from a couple years ago when Australian rock band Jet were playing.

These flats which were converted from old warehouses on the Walsh Bay wharves have a marina out the front. Bathed in the golden glow of sunset, the Sydney Harbour Bridge is peeking from behind.

Holsworthy, school

The Jacaranda trees around Sydney flower in November, like this one located outside Holsworthy High School, in the south western suburb of Holsworthy. While the Jacaranda tree is actually native to Brazil, it really thrives in Australia.

Bondi, advertisement

Over the last couple of weeks I have been featuring sculptures at the annual Sculpture by the Sea exhibition. This curious sculpture at the entrance to the exhibition was not actually one of the exhibits but a clever, or rather, sneaky promotion. The "Hello Sydney" number plate features an email address which is also inscribed on the 'artwork'. Once you visit the website, you realise this 'sculpture' was actually an advertisement for a new car, which is about to be launched.
