The Rocks, Vivid Sydney, The Georges

This row of heritage terrace houses in George Street at The Rocks was lit up for the Vivid Sydney festival. "The Georges" was a design by Gordon Watson, using waves of colour to highlight both the diversity of the residents who lived here over the years and the ever changing population as older residents move on and new dwellers arrive.

    WOMAN IN THE YELLOW COAT

    Woman in the yellow coat,
    Are you heading for a boat?
    Or perhaps you need a bus
    To get far away from us.
    Whether wheels or sails you take
    Don’t forget the chocolate cake
    To sustain you on your way;
    Yellow-lover, now we say,
    “Go with grace, enjoy the ride,
    See you on the other side!”
