The Rocks and adjacent areas of Sydney Harbour fell under the ownership of the NSW Government after 1900. Plans to redevelop the area were achieved with limited success up to World War 1, and thereafter events such as the Great Depression, the Harbour Bridge and the Green Bans left their mark. Wayne Johnson will focus on some of the people, places and policies that shaped the history of The Rocks and its significant place in the development of legislation to protect the State’s heritage.
