The first major history of Paddington — Sydney’s celebrated
heritage suburb — in forty years
This first major history of Paddington in forty years provides a fresh and revealing perspective on this celebrated heritage suburb in Sydney — one of the largest and most intact Victorian enclaves in the world. Leading historians and specialists explore the makeup of Paddington’s diverse community — including its Indigenous, colonial, post-war migrant, bohemian and LGBTQ residents, and a succession of gentrifiers — and discuss the evolution of the suburb’s unique architecture and landscape.
