Parbury Ruins

The last couple of days in Sydney have been extremely warm, with temperatures in the mid-30s. Today was a terrific day to head underground, to visit a place with a climate resembling a wine cellar.

The Parbury Ruins, at Miller’s Point, were uncovered only a few years ago during the construction of an apartment block. Now preserved for the future, the ruins of what was once a nineteenth century free-standing house with harbour views, are now preserved for the future, located underneath the apartment block.

By appointment, and on special occasions, the ruins are open to the public, also containing displays of artefacts from the archaeological dig.

It was awesome to visit the ruins today, to go underground and enjoy the history, and to enjoy the cooler conditions.

Sue and I followed this with lunch at nearby Fratelli Fresh. An awesome way to spend the day.
