Darlington, Memorial Gates

The Darlington Memorial Gates are located along Maze Crescent, at the The Old School which is part of the University of Sydney campus, in the inner city suburb of Darlington. They were originally the gates for Darlington Public School, designed by George Allan Mansfield and built in 1878 in the Gothic Revival architectural style. The building was transferred to the university in 1975 and renovated in 1978 for use by the Department of Music and as a theatre workshop.


  1. Interesting building. I love the gate

    1. Jeff, the sign is on the side of the school building but I see your point about the names on the memorial being a bit hard to read because they're in the shadows.

  3. It is nice that the gates are still being used.

  4. An impressive entrance. I like that the "posts" also serve as memorials.

  5. Gates make interesting shadows (most of the time).
