A recent highly sympathetic renovation has exposed the historic archways and idyllic sunken gardens to create a beautiful space to sit and linger.

Today we view the Photos1440 photojournalism exhibition at the Exhibition Galleries, The State Library of New South Wales. Admission is free. Marking its 10th year, the Photos1440 exhibition returns to the Library with a look back over the past decade of key events and moments captured through the lens of Sydney Morning Herald photographers. The exhibition features more than 200 images including award-winning photography from the Herald’s chief photographer Nick Moir and Gold Walkley winner Kate Geraghty. From the wreckage of the MH17 plane crash strewn amongst sunflowers to a poignant frame of Newmarch House resident Alice Bacon, who was the 100th COVID-19 victim in Australia, experience a tribute to photojournalism that has the power to inspire, to educate and to form opinion. We depart Eggshell Cafe at 2:15pm to walk to the exhibition at The State Library of NSW.
