HistoryAfter the Sydney CBD, Randwick is the second oldest municipality in Sydney. It is named after the village of Randwick, in Gloucestershire, England, the birthplace of the first Mayor of Randwick Simeon Henry Pearce. Pearce and his brother were responsible for much of the development of Randwick, after migrating to Australia in 1842.
The area has many notable heritage buildings and landmarks, including St Jude’s Church, built in 1865, and the adjoining cemetery established in 1843. Others include Ventnor, the historic home of early politician George Kiss, built circa 1870, and Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Church, built in 1888.
Also heritage listed, is Randwick Lodge, one of the Sydney Lodges properties. Built in 1898 by Elizabeth Callaghan, and originally named ‘Corona’ and ‘Hygeia’, the building was used as consulting rooms by doctors and dentists.
