Darlington, University of Sydney, restaurant

The Darlington Centre and Forum Restaurant are a conference centre and event space on the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Darlington. The Darlington Centre is a restored 1880s house, formerly the director's residence for the adjacent former Blind Institute. The Forum Restaurant was built in the adjacent space in 2002, with twelve 19th century stone gateposts, excavated from the site, defining the gardens and lawns. A couple of cranes dominate the skyline from new developments nearby.


  1. oh, i like those fence posts very much!!

  2. Very unusual to see those stone gateposts....remind me of Greek architecture.

  3. Oh, yes! I, too, love those fence posts, Jim! Terrific capture for the day as always!! Have a great weekend!!

  4. Unique and creative photo ~ great sky!

    Happy Weekend coming to you,

  5. Very cool looking gate posts. - Your link takes you to a different photo though.

    1. Ida, the first link is for both the Darlington Centre and the Forum Restaurant. These buildings are now part of the university which is the second link. The Darlington Centre was the house of the director of the adjacent former Blind Institute Building which is the final link.

  6. The stone pillars are neat, I am glad they saved the building for new purposes. Cranes show how vital the city is ... Mixing old and new.

  7. Such a contrast between the cranes (development) and of an historical Darling Center. Great shot!
