Places nearby Camperdown


The inner Sydney suburbs of Camperdown and neighbouring Darlington are an intriguing area of contrast where stunning old churches, terraces and historic halls of learning and healing stand cheek-by-jowl with new apartment blocks and nests of town houses.

If you get the opportunity to tour the centrepiece of Sydney University, the Great Hall, don't pass it up. This is regarded as one of the masterpieces of Sydney architectural art, especially its windows.

The stained glass windows at the eastern and western ends represent the founders of Cambridge and Oxford, while the Royal Window - a gift from benefactor John Henry Challis - features the portraits of English kings and queens since the Norman Conquest.

Camperdown also gave birth to the boutique brewer, Hahn. Since the company was taken over by a multi-national, original brewer Dr Chuck Hahn has returned to the scene as the head honcho of the Malt Shovel Brewery which produces the James Squire line of ale, pilsener and porter.

Hamish Campbell: The Taisho Photographer's House

Hidden atop a hill, deep in a bamboo grove in northern Japan lies a house full of history.

Japan is full of abandoned residences, but very few offer people quite the same glimpse into the lives of its former residents as this one. Constructed some time during the Taisho era (1912 to 1926) and abandoned in the late 70s or early 80s, several generations of family lived here (likely the Matsunobu family based on documents remaining on the property), and one of these people was a photographer.

In this exhibition Hamish Campbell presents his own photography of this peaceful small parcel of land as it exists today, alongside images taken by the Taisho Photographer, as well as images attempting to bridge the gap between these two eras.
