Annandale, Bicentennial Park

The Esther Abrahams Pavilion is located in Bicentennial Park, in inner west suburb of Annandale. It is named after the woman, who with her husband George Johnston, founded the Annandale Estate which lent its name to the suburb. The park is on the foreshore of Rozelle Bay, with the Anzac Bridge just seen in the distance.

    1. The pavilion itself seems traditional to me but I find the brick skirting quite unusual.

  6. How very interesting. I think they've taken the name "Annandale" from the original clan seat of the lowland Johnston family in Scotland. It's just beside Lockerbie where PanAm 103 was blown out of the sky. All the best, Bonny

    1. J Bonafilla, it was named Annandale after the birthplace of George Johnston which was Annan, Scotland.

  7. The sloping brick feature is a most unusual addition to the pavilion design.
