Event Details

Much of the City of Sydney’s twentieth-century planning history is reflected in the development and re-development of Circular Quay. It has also been a site of controversy. During the 1930s, public debate erupted over the Circular Quay railway and what was to finally be named the Cahill Expressway. Even stronger contestation arose from the early 1980s over plans to give Sydney’s ‘gateway’ a facelift.


Paul Ashton is Professor of Public History at the University of Technology, Sydney where he is Co-Director of the Australian Centre for Public History. His latest book, co-authored with Paula Hamilton, is History at the Crossroads: Australians and the Past (Halstead Press).
