Camperdown, University of Sydney, John Woolley Building

The John Woolley Building is located along Science Road on the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Camperdown. This heritage listed building was designed by Walter Liberty Vernon and built in 1908 in the Federation Arts and Crafts architectural style. Its design was altered by Professor Leslie Wilkinson in 1921 and a southern addition was built in 1940. It now houses a post office and is part of the School of Letters, Art and Media in the Faculty of Arts and Social Sciences.


  1. Wonderful photo, I love that frame, beautiful building !!

  2. The curved, protruding feature of the building adds so much character to it. Interesting one.

  3. I am always grateful when such lovely and unique buildings as this find new life in continuing to be used.

  4. I wonder if all the buildings you photograph for our meme must meet the 100 year old minimum criteria? Anyway, this one is certainly interesting and full of character-love the rounded part of it.

    1. There is no limit Paula but I do find the older buildings a lot more interesting.

  5. I love this solid fantasy!

  6. The circular portion of it really appeals to me.

  7. Great photo of a great building. I love how the building looks like it's been through some things.

  8. Love your views! All the more reason to want to visit Australia.
